Kosmos Energy has completed drilling of the Hippocampe 1 exploration well in Block C8 offshore Mauritania, the company said in a statement.
Hippocampe 1 was drilled to a depth of 5,500 metres.
"Well-developed reservoirs were encountered in both exploration targets but these proved to be water bearing," said Kosmos.
The well will now be plugged and abandoned.
