A shareholders class action lawsuit for violations of securities laws was commenced in the Texas state court on January 10, 2012. The complaint alleges that Kosmos Energy failed to disclose the design defects in the oil wells, even though Kosmos Energy was aware of this prior to the IPO. The complaint further alleges that Kosmos Energy failed to disclose that its oil field was underperforming at or around 80,000 barrels of oil per day instead of the expected 120,000 barrels of oil per day, up to and during the IPO.

The design defects in the oil wells and the underperforming oil field has cost shareholders hundreds of millions of dollars. In November, Kosmos told investors in a conference call that it would cost a considerable amount in 2012 to fix the defects in the oil wells, and would delay the expected production levels by years.
