Discovery of the neutron The story of the discovery of the neutron and its properties is central to the extraordinary developments in atomic physics that occurred in the first half of the 20th century, leading ultimately to the atomic bomb in In the Rutherford model, the atom consisted of a small positively charged massive nucleus surrounded by a much larger cloud of negatively charged electrons. InRutherford suggested that the nucleus consisted of positive protons and neutrally-charged particles, suggested to be a proton and an electron bound in some way. It was difficult to reconcile the proton—electron model for nuclei with the Heisenberg uncertainty relation of quantum mechanics.
KOS announced today a major gas discovery offshore Senegal. Yakaar-1 is the first well in a series of four independent tests of the basin floor fan fairways, outboard of the proven slope channel trend opened with the Tortue-1 discovery.
Located in the Cayar Offshore Profond block approximately 95 kilometers northwest of Dakar in nearly 2, meters of water, the well has been drilled to a total depth of approximately 4, meters.
Yakaar-1 intersected a gross hydrocarbon column of meters feet in three pools within the primary Lower Cenomanian objective and encountered 45 meters feet of net pay.
Well results confirm the presence of thick, stacked, reservoir sands over a very large area with very good porosity and permeability. Inglischairman and chief executive officer, said: Yakaar-1 discovered a major gas resource.
Together with the Teranga — 1 discovery made last year, we believe this resource will support a second cost-competitive LNG hub. The result also confirms our view of the potential scale of the petroleum system offshore Mauritania and Senegalin particular the basin floor fan systems which have now been further de — risked, with the well demonstrating that reservoir and trap both work in these previously untested fairways.
Preliminary analysis of gas samples conducted on the rig suggest the well encountered a gas with a condensate-to-gas ratio CGR in the range previously encountered at Tortue and Teranga, approximately barrels per million standard cubic feet.
An appraisal program is being planned to delineate the Yakaar discovery. Kosmos will provide additional information about the Yakaar-1 discovery during its first quarter conference call on Monday, May 8, For Immediate Release: Caelus Confirms Large-Scale Discovery on the North Slope of Alaska.
