Development of the Nandua Reservoir began in August this year, following a final investment decision (FID) of the partnership in the reservoir. The development of the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2024, when in the full first production year it is expected to produce about 80,000 barrels per day, from four production wells.
The reservoir contains about 388 million barrels of oil and gas (BOE) and Navits’ share stands at 190 million barrels. The cost of the break-even in the project is $ 16 per barrel and the marginal production cost per barrel is about $ 8.
The discounted cash flow (NPV 10) for Navits’ share is about $ 1.61 billion, based on an oil price of $ 61 derived from average analyst forecasts. In a $ 75 barrel price scenario, the expected discounted cash flow to Navits from the Naduada project jumps to $ 2.19 billion. The price of a barrel of oil in the commodity market today is about $ 75 (WTI Crude Oil).
