OilNow is an online-based Information and Resource Centre which serves to complement the work of all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

The search for hydrocarbons continues at the Carapa—1 prospect located in the Kanuku block offshore the South American country of Guyana, with results expected over the next several days.

“Repsol is currently focused on drilling the Carapa exploration well with our joint interest owners in the Kanuku Block,” spokesperson Christi Shafer told OilNOW on Monday, confirming that the drill campaign, which was scheduled to begin in Q3 2019, continues.

Carapa is the first target to be drilled at the Kanuku block. Repsol is joined on the block by French supermajor Total, each with 37.5% interest, and Anglo-Irish independent Tullow Oil, with 25%.

Tullow Oil said last week that a result from Carapa-1 is expected before year-end.

In late March, Repsol booked the Super 116E-class jack-up EXL II to drill the well. The rig is owned by Valaris, which is the new name of EnscoRowan, following the merger of Ensco and Rowan.

The Kanuku block lies south of the prolific ExxonMobil-operated Stabroek block, where the US supermajor has recently nudged up the discovered recoverable resource base to more than 6 billion barrels of oil equivalent.
