    Amerada Hess Corporation reports that it has made a significant oil discovery offshore Equatorial Guinea in the Rio Muni Basin. The discovery, named Ebano, was made by the F-2 well, which was drilled to a total depth of 11,011ft in approximately 2,052ftof water in Block F. The find was confirmed by a geological sidetrack in Block G, which was drilled to a total depth of 9,446ft.

    Analysis of downhole measurements indicates the Ebano-1 sidetrack exploration well has gross oil pay of 300ft, with 181ft true vertical depth of net oil bearing pay between 7,469ft and 7,756ft. The oil has an API gravity of 36.5 degrees. The well is located about 10 miles northeast of Amerada Hess' Ceiba Field and encountered reservoirs similar in quality to those of the Ceiba Field and the recently announced Okume and Oveng discoveries, with comparable porosity and permeability.
