The Noble Tom Madden drillship arrived offshore Guyana on Friday. The 752 ft vessel was contracted by ExxonMobil Guyana to undertake exploration activities in the 6.6 million acres Stabtoek Block where a record 9 discoveries have already been made, amounting to more than 4 billion barrels of recoverable oil.

ExxonMobil Guyana’s Senior Director, Public and Government Affairs, Deedra Moe, told OilNOW on Friday that the company is excited about the Tom Madden’s arrival.

OilNOW understands that the vessel will begin drilling for oil at the Pluma 1 prospect early November. Its drilling programme offshore the South American country includes two firm wells, plus three optional wells.
