- Kosmos Energy expects drilling on the TEN project in West Africa to resume around the end of year following the resolution of a maritime boundary dispute.

Kosmos said the special chamber of the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea had issued its final decision in the dispute between the governments of Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire.

Kosmos said the maritime boundary delimited by the special chamber's decision had no impact on the TEN field's production or reserves or otherwise on the company's interests in Ghana.

It said: 'The TEN partnership expects to resume TEN development drilling around the end of the year to ramp up production with additional wells to the FPSO capacity of 80,000 barrels of oil per day.'
