Sao Tome and Principe - Oil and Gas Exploration

Strategic Re-Entry into Gulf Of Guinea

From 2015 to early 2018, Kosmos took advantage of the industry’s down-cycle to build its exploration portfolio. Kosmos’ acquisition of acreage offshore Sao Tome marks a strategic re-entry into the Gulf of Guinea, an area we know very well and which provides an opportunity to pursue the core Cretaceous theme that was successful for us in Ghana.

Our exploration team has extensive experience working in the basin.
