Guyana: Exxon drilling two new wells offshore Guyana
Just weeks after its 10th major find, ExxonMobil is gearing up to begin drilling for oil at two separate locations offshore Guyana.
These plans haven’t been affected by the interruption of the gathering of seismic data in the western part of the Liza-1 block following an incursion into Guyana’s waters by the Venezuelan Navy.
According to advertisements in yesterday’s Sunday Stabroek, Exxon’s local subsidiary, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL) is set to begin a three-month drilling operation on January 5th, 2019 at the Tilapia-1 well site within the Stabroek Block. Tilapia-1 is located 3.4 miles (5.5 kilometers) west of the Longtail-1 well. Eleven vessels will be involved in this operation: Noble Tom Madden, M/V Cat Island, M/V Eland, M/V Oryx, Clarence Triche, Liam J Mc Call, Paradise Island, Sanibel Island, Horn Island, Robert Adams and Jack Edwards.
