Western Sahara

  Boujdour Maritime

We hold exploration acreage offshore Western Sahara as part of our focus on the Atlantic Margin, and our strategy to focus on frontier and emerging basin acreage.

Cairn is in a joint venture partnership with Kosmos Energy (55% WI and operator) and ONHYM (25% WI). The JV drilled one well on the Cap Boujdour permit in 2015 which did encounter hydrocarbons but was non-commercial. In 2016, a new Petroleum Agreement on the Boujdour Martitime contract area was put in place and 3D seismic acquisition is commencing in 2017.
