Indigenous Ghanaian petroleum upstream player, Springfield Exploration and Production Limited (SEP) is blaming Italian oil & gas firm, Eni, for the delay in the unitisation of the Afina Discovery and Sankofa oil field offshore the western part of the Republic of Ghana.
According to Springfield E&P, it has demonstrated commitment to the process of unitisation of the two oil fields since the country’s former Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu directed the two firms to do so in April 2020.
“Indeed, from April 2020 when the directive was issued, talks have been ongoing amongst various government institutions on one hand and Springfield, with Eni being the only uncooperative party,” the company said in a statement copied to energynewsafrica.com.
The statement said Springfield has been and will remain a willing and cooperative party to the unitisation of the Afina-Sankofa fields.
The company also clarified some erroneous media reportage on the issue of the unitisation.
