OilNow is an online-based Information and Resource Centre which serves to complement the work of all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

Preparations are on schedule for the first well targeted for 2021 by Tullow Oil in the highly prospective Suriname basin where US multinational Apache has already made three discoveries.

“In Suriname, the prospective Goliathberg-Voltzberg North-1 well is on schedule to spud in Q1 2021,” Tullow Oil said in an update this week.

The Stena Forth drillship has been contracted to spud the well which is located around 160 miles north of the Suriname coast in Block 47.

Stena Drilling is expected to mobilise the vessel to the site in either late December or early January 2021 and will begin drilling the prospect towards the end of the January, early February.

“Stena Drilling is pleased to be the chosen contractor for this work and look forward to working with Tullow Oil plc and their partners again on this exciting opportunity,” Stena had said in a statement.

The Goliathberg-Voltzberg North-1 well will test dual targets in the Cretaceous turbidite play in approximately 1,900 metres of water.
