Forbes/AFX News Limited: Total strikes oil at offshore Dissoni block in Cameroon

06.01.2006 
 
PARIS (AFX) – Total SA said the first exploration well drilled in the Dissoni offshore block of Cameroon has found oil, adding that further appraisals will be carried out to determine the field’s potential.

Total is the operator of the block with a 50 pct stake, alongside Royal Dutch Shell PLC’s Pectan unit. The block was awarded to the companies in April 2005.

‘The latest discovery validates Total’s strategy of capitalising on its operated acreage in Cameroon, as well as its commitment, alongside its partners and the authorities, to offsetting the natural decline in production from mature fields,’ the company said.
