The Stena DrillMAX has begun drilling the Sapote-1 prospect at the Canje Block, JHI Associates Inc. said on Sunday.

The Sapote-1 well is designed to test Upper Cretaceous reservoirs in a stratigraphic trap.  The well is approximately 255 km northeast of Georgetown, in 2,550 meters of water, and is being drilled with the Stena DrillMax drillship.

The Sapote prospect lies approximately 100 km southeast of the Jabillo location and approximately 50 km north of the Haimara discovery in the Stabroek Block and approximately 60 km northwest of the Maka Central discovery in Block 58.

Sapote will be the third well to be drilled on the Canje block this year. Bulletwood-1 was safely drilled in 2,846 meters of water by the Stena Carron drillship to its planned target depth of 6,690 meters but failed to deliver commercial crude. Jabillo-1 was also non-commercial. It was safely drilled to a depth of 6,475 meters in 2,903 meters of water by the same rig

Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (35%), a subsidiary of ExxonMobil Corporation, operates the Canje Block on behalf of partners TotalEnergies E&P Guyana, B.V. (35%), JHI Associates (BVI) Inc. (17.5%), and Mid-Atlantic Oil & Gas, Inc. (12.5%).
