Industry analyst Wood Mackenzie has compiled a list of the ‘highest profile’ wells being drilled in 2018 based on data received from more than 200 senior energy leaders and professionals.

In its new ‘The Future of Exploration Survey 2018’ report, Wood Mackenzie said the industry continues to focus on building acreage portfolios without accepting additional risk while budget constraint remains the top issue for explorers, followed by new opportunities and portfolio quality.

Kosmos’ Anapai-1 in Suriname, Total’s Tucano-1 in Brazil and Repsol’s Bon Bini-1 offshore Aruba are among the wells at top of the analyst watch list for 2018.

Below is the full list of the most anticipated conventional wells being drilled this year:

  • Pemex – Yaaxtaab-1
  • Repsol – Bon Bini-1, Ivela
  • Repsol & Shell – Boyuy, Jaguar
  • Kosmos Energy – Anapai-1, Requin Tigre-1
  • Statoil – Guanxuma, Aru Trough
  • BP – Aspy, Peroba
  • Eni – Santola-1, RD-1, 4118-4-1, Calypso-1, Cuttlefish
  • Siccar Point Energy – Lyon
  • Total – Tucano-1, Paddavissie-1, Tepat, Antelope South-1
  • Far Limited – Samo-1
  • Tullow Oil – Cormorant-1
  • Statoil – Gjokasen
  • Rosneft – Maria-1
  • Gazprom – Bautinskaya-1
  • Petro Matad – Takhi-1

In total, 207 energy leaders participated in WoodMac’s latest survey, with 32 percent of this figure coming from Europe, 30 percent from North America, 21 percent from Asia, 6 percent from South America, 5 percent from Africa, and 3 percent from Australasia.
