Dawes Island is a marginal field located in the south-eastern corner of OML 54, onshore (shallow swamp), eastern Niger Delta. The project involved the well re-entry and side-tracking of a previously drilled well by Chevron Nigeria using Funtay’s trailer-mounted rig on a constructed platform around the wellhead. The well was drilled to depth of over 9,000 ft to penetrate the Hydrocarbon sand and complete.
TAKO E&P Solutions Limited (part of Funtay Group) is the technical partner and equity holder in Dawes Island OML 54 field. TAKO/Funtay was involved in the entire Asset Development of the field, drilling/re-entry, and is the EPF O&M contractor on the field.
