Appraisal drilling and related activities are ongoing at the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana as US oil major ExxonMobil moves to assess several discoveries and map out future targets.

Hess corporation, a 30% co-venturer on the block, provided an update on activities offshore the South American country on its earnings call on Wednesday.

Greg Hill, President and Chief Operating Officer said exploration success on the block continues and development activities are progressing to plan. The ExxonMobil-led consortium has made a record 14 discoveries on the block to date, amounting to more than 6 billion barrels of oil equivalent.

The 14th discovery was made at the Tripletail-1 well located in the Turbot area approximately three miles northeast of the Longtail discovery. Hill said drilling operations and evaluation are ongoing with additional hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs encountered below the previously announced discovery.

Following completion of activities at Tripletail, the Noble Tom Madden will next drill the Uaru-1 prospect located approximately 10 miles east of the Liza-1 well.

“Also, on the block, the Stena Carron drillship is currently conducting well operations on the Ranger-2 appraisal well, which includes an extensive logging and quarrying program,” he pointed out.

Following Ranger-2, the rig will move to the previously announced Yellowtail-1 discovery to conduct a production test.

Hill remined that a fourth drillship, the Noble Don Taylor, is expected to arrive in Guyana in November and will drill the Mako-1 exploration well, located approximately six miles south of the Liza-1 well.
