Australian based petroleum company BHP confirmed on Wednesday that it failed to encounter hydrocarbons at the Broadside-1 exploration well in Trinidad and Tobago.
“In Trinidad and Tobago, the Broadside-1 exploration well in the Southern Licence reached the main reservoir on October 22, 2020 and did not encounter hydrocarbons,” the company said in an operation review for the half year ended December 31, 2020.
BHP said the well was a dry hole and was plugged and abandoned on November 8, 2020.
“The results are under evaluation to determine next steps on the Southern Licences,” the company stated.
Broadside-1 was drilled in Block TTDAA 3 of BHP’s Southern Deepwater Acreage in a water depth of 6,624 feet. It’s located approximately 32 kilometres to the East of the previously drilled LeClerc-1 Exploration Well which was drilled in Block TTDAA 5.
