ExxonMobil said that it made an oil discovery on the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana at the Tripletail-1 well in the Turbot area. The discovery adds to the previously announced estimated recoverable resource of more than 6 billion oil-equivalent barrels on the Stabroek Block. Tripletail-1 encountered approximately 108 feet of a high-quality oil bearing sandstone reservoir. Tripletail-1, drilled in 6,572 feet of water, is located approximately 3 miles northeast of the Longtail discovery. After completion of operations at Tripletail, the Noble Tom Madden drillship will next drill the Uaru-1 well, located approximately 6 miles east of the Liza field.

Mike Cousins, senior vice president of exploration and new ventures at ExxonMobil, said that “This discovery helps to further inform the development of the Turbot area. Together with our partners, ExxonMobil is deploying industry-leading capabilities to identify projects that can be developed efficiently and in a cost-effective way.”
