The Stena Carron drillship which has been exploring for oil in the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana is scheduled to depart for Spain for drydocking.

Speaking on a 3rd quarter earnings call on Wednesday, Gregory P. Hill, President and Chief Operating Officer of Hess Corporation said, “The Stena Carron rig will now go to Las Palmas in the Canary Islands in Spain for recertification and is expected to return to the block in late December when we plan to spud a well on the upper Cretaceous Amara prospect located 24 miles southeast of the Turbot discovery.”

A second exploration vessel, the Noble Tom Madden drillship, has arrived in Guyana and is scheduled to spud a well on the Pluma prospect in early November. “The well location is approximately 16 miles south of Turbot and will also target upper Cretaceous reservoirs on trend with the Turbot and Longtail discoveries,” Hill stated.

The Stena Carron recently struck oil at the Hammerhead-1 prospect located approximately 13 miles (21 kilometers) southwest of the Liza-1 well, making it the 9th discovery offshore the South American country.

The Stabroek Block is 6.6 million acres (26,800 square kilometers). ExxonMobil affiliate, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited, is operator and holds 45 percent interest in the Stabroek Block. Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd. holds 30 percent interest and CNOOC Nexen Petroleum Guyana Limited holds 25 percent interest.
