The Stena DrillMAX is sailing across the Atlantic, on its way to Newfoundland to assist with an ExxonMobil-led campaign. 

The vessel will be used to drill the Persephone wildcat well of Exploration License (EL) 1169. The license area lies in the highly prospective Orphan basin off the northeast coast of Newfoundland and Labrador.

ExxonMobil Guyana told OilNOW the temporary redeployment of the Stena DrillMAX will not impact ongoing exploration and appraisal plans for Guyana, and that the vessel is expected to return in the third quarter of 2024. 

The Stena Carron recently returned to Guyana after undergoing its Special Periodic Survey (SPS) in Spain, during which it underwent upgrades.

ExxonMobil is executing a 35-well campaign for the Stabroek Block, which was approved last year. Exxon is also conducting development drilling on multiple projects. It has six drillships on contract for its Guyana operations, including four from Noble Drilling.
