According to findings released by GlobalData, ExxonMobil is set to explore one of Ghana’s 21 licensed upstream oil and gas blocks.

14 of the blocks are in ultra-deep water, two are in deep water, and five are in shallow water, the data shows.

The US-based oil and gas firm plans to join companies like Tullow Oil Plc, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Kosmos Energy Ltd, and CEF (SOC) Ltd in licensing a block.

Each of the aforementioned firms is currently participating in four blocks.

ExxonMobil has entered the upstream market by pursuing exploration of the Deepwater Cape Three Points block.
