ExxonMobil is moving to appraise the two discoveries it made earlier this year, Lancetfish-1 and Fangtooth SE-1. Guyana’s Maritime Administration Department announced the drilling activities in notices.

More than 11 billion oil-equivalent barrels have already been discovered at the Stabroek Block.

ExxonMobil is the operator of the Stabroek Block, with a 45% stake. Hess (30%) and CNOOC (25%) are its partners.
