ExxonMobil has contracted the drillship Noble Don Taylor for operations offshore the South American country of Guyana. This is according to a fleet status report from Noble Corporation which was published on April 18, 2019.

The Noble Don Taylor has been contracted for drill campaigns in the Stabroek Block from October 2019 to October 2020 as the US supermajor continues exploration drilling activities offshore Guyana and installation operations in preparation for first oil.

ExxonMobil along with joint venture partners HESS and CNOOC has so far made 13 discoveries since May 2015 with an estimated recoverable resource being more than 5.5 billion barrels of oil equivalent.

The Noble Don Taylor, which is currently working for Talos Energy in the Gulf of Mexico, will be joining two of its sister vessels – the Noble Bob Douglas and the Noble Tom Madden – which are in the Stabroek Block on contract for ExxonMobil. Along with the Stena Carron, ExxonMobil’s drill fleet in the South American country will rise to 4.

Oil production is set to commence in 2020 at a rate of 120,000 barrels per day from the Liza Phase 1 Development. Production is expected to ramp up to 750,000 barrels per day by 2025 from multiple developments, utilizing at least five FPSOs.
