Kevin Okyere’s Springfield Energy group has started its historic drilling for oil in Western Region’s Cape Three Points.
The drilling, which started yesterday, is the first to be undertaken by a wholly-owned Ghanaian company in the upstream oil sector.
Springfield has contracted charter drillship, Stena Forth for two well drillings in the country on its deepwater West Cape Three Points, block 2 off the coast of Ghana.
The Stena Forth is one of the world’s most sophisticated drillships and capable of operating in up to 10,000 feet of water and drilling to a depth of 35,000 feet.

Thanks be to God. We continue to make HISTORY! Drilling has commenced in deepwater offshore Ghana and at 6.55pm, 7th October, 2019; we spudded the Afina -1x well at WCTP 2 with the Stena Forth Rig! I thank everyone for your continued support and prayers which have helped carry us to this moment. This feat couldn’t have been accomplished without the immeasurable contribution of our array of contractors/suppliers. Thanks goes to my family especially my wife and kids as they have been supportive of my dreams, Tullow Oil, Ministry of Energy , Petroleum Commission, our partners GNPC and EXPLORCO and the @springfield.group family. • • • #thisisafrica #kevinokyere #AfricaRising #deepwateroffshore #kevinokyerefoundation #Springfieldgroup #Ghana #Africa #oilandgas #History
In April 2017, Springfield – which is a wholly-owned Ghanaian company, contracted the world’s largest seismic vessel, the Ramform Titan owned by Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) to undertake a 3-D seismic data acquisition on its Block.
Springfield ventured into the upstream sector to secure private Ghanaian involvement in upstream exploration and production opportunities in Ghana and the West African sub-region.
In 2016, the Ghana government awarded Springfield Exploration and Production Limited its pioneer asset- West Cape Three Points Block 2 Offshore Ghana.
Springfield is currently the Operator and Majority Interest Holder (84%) of West Cape Three Points Block 2 with the Ghana National Petroleum Company and its exploration company, Explorco, holding the remaining interest.
They have been doing amazing so far… all the best!
