ExxonMobil made two further discoveries offshore Guyana on the Tilapia-1 and Haimara-1 wells, bringing the whole variety of discoveries on the Stabroek Block to 12.
ExxonMobil associate Hess Corporation, introduced optimistic outcomes from the 2 wells offshore Guyana, bringing the whole variety of discoveries on the Stabroek Block to 12.
“These two discoveries display the persevering with exploration potential on the prolific Stabroek Block and add to the beforehand introduced gross found recoverable useful resource estimate of greater than 5 billion barrels of oil equal,” mentioned CEO John Hess.
Tilapia-1 encountered roughly 305 ft (93 meters) of top of the range oil bearing sandstone reservoir and was drilled to a depth of 18,786 ft (5,726 meters) in 5,850 ft (1,783 meters) of water. The effectively is positioned roughly three.Four miles (5.5 kilometers) west of the Longtail-1 effectively. In addition to Tilapia-1 the Turbot space consists of the Turbot, Longtail and Pluma discoveries.
The Noble Tom Madden drillship started drilling the effectively on Jan. 7 and can subsequent drill the Yellowtail-1 effectively, positioned roughly six miles (10 kilometers) west of the Tilapia-1 effectively within the Turbot space. Baseline Four-D seismic information acquisition is underway.
The Haimara-1 effectively encountered roughly 207 ft (63 meters) of top of the range, fuel condensate bearing sandstone reservoir. The effectively was drilled to a depth of 18,289 ft (5,575 meters) in Four,590 ft (1,399 meters) of water. It is positioned roughly 19 miles (31 kilometers) east of the Pluma-1 effectively and is a possible new space for improvement.
The Stena Carron drillship started drilling the effectively on Jan. three and can subsequent return to the Longtail discovery to finish a effectively check.
Stabroek Block Development Advances
The earlier 10 discoveries on the Stabroek Block established the potential for at the very least 5 floating, manufacturing storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels producing greater than 750,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025.
The Liza Phase 1 improvement is progressing on schedule and is anticipated to start producing as much as 120,000 barrels of oil per day in early 2020, using the Liza Destiny FPSO. Liza Phase 2, which can use a second FPSO designed to provide as much as 220,000 barrels of oil per day, is anticipated to startup by mid 2022. A 3rd improvement, Payara, is anticipated to startup as early as 2023.
The Stabroek Block is 6.6 million acres (26,800 sq. kilometers). ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limitedis operator and holds 45 p.c curiosity within the Stabroek Block. Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd. holds 30 p.c curiosity and CNOOC Petroleum Guyana Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, holds 25 p.c curiosity. (Source and picture: Hess)
