Offshore Guyana Estimate Gets Another Upgrade

Offshore Guyana Estimate Gets Another Upgrade
ExxonMobil reports that it made its 10th discovery offshore Guyana.
Exxon Mobil Corp. reported Monday that it made its 10th discovery offshore Guyana. Moreover, it increased its estimate of the discovered recoverable resource for the South American country’s Stabroek Block from more than 4 billion to more than 5 billion oil-equivalent barrels.

The estimate revision stems from further evaluation of previous discoveries and includes a new discovery at the Pluma-1 well, ExxonMobil explained in a written statement emailed to Rigzone.

ExxonMobil has now increased its Stabroek resource estimate twice within the past six months. In July of this year, it reported that it was revising the estimate from 3.2 billion to more than 4 billion oil-equivalent barrels. Given the most recent 5 billion-plus figure, the publicly announced Stabroek estimate has increased by roughly two-thirds since this past summer.

“The discovery of a resource base of more than 5 billion oil-equivalent barrels in less than four years is a testament of our technical expertise and rigorous evaluation and pursuit of high-potential, high-risk opportunities in this frontier area,” noted Neil Chapman, ExxonMobil senior vice president. “We will continue to apply what we’ve learned to identify additional exploration prospects and potential future discoveries that will delivery significant value to Guyanese people, our partners and shareholders.”

According to ExxonMobil, Pluma-1 encountered approximately 121 feet (37 meters) of high-quality hydrocarbon-bearing sandstone reservoir. The well, which the Noble Tom Madden drillship spud Nov. 1, reached a depth of 16,447 feet (5,013 meters) in 3,340 feet (1,018 meters) of water, added the supermajor, which owns a 45-percent interest in the Stabroek Block and serves as operator.

“Guyana is a truly world class investment opportunity with multi billion barrels of additional exploration potential,” noted John Hess, CEO of 30-percent Stabroek owner Hess Corp. “The growing resource base on the Stabroek Block further underpins the potential for at least five FPSOs (floating production storage and offloading vessels) producing more than 750,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025.”

Le Venezuela accuse la Guyane d'avoir violé sa souveraineté

AFP le 24 déc. 2018

Le Venezuela a accusé dimanche la Guyane d'avoir violé sa souveraineté et annoncé que la marine militaire vénézuélienne a intercepté et chassé deux navires d'exploration sismique travaillant pour l'entreprise pétrolière et gazière américaine ExxonMobil avec l'autorisation du gouvernement guyanais, dans une zone maritime disputée par les deux pays.

Dénonçant une "violation flagrante" de "souveraineté", le ministère des Affaires étrangères vénézuélien a indiqué dans un communiqué qu'une patrouille avait intercepté samedi dans les "eaux territoriales du Venezuela" les navires Ramform, battant pavillon des Bahamas, et Delta Monarch (Trinidad et Tobago), "les deux sous contrats pour la transnationale ExxonMobil", et les a obligés à se retirer.

De son côté, la Guyane a dénoncé l'interception du navire Ramform Thethys, la qualifiant d'acte "illégal, agressif et hostile". Elle n'a pas fait référence au Delta Monarch.

Le ministère des Affaires étrangères guyanais a lui aussi accusé son voisin de "violer" ses eaux territoriales.

Le Venezuela a assuré qu'il avait agit dans le "strict respect des accords et traités internationaux".

Le gouvernement vénézuélien réclame la souveraineté sur le territoire du Essequibo, région riche en ressources minérales et qui couvre une large zone maritime riche en réserves pétrolières.

La Guyane, ancienne colonie britannique, affirme que les frontières ont été établies en 1899 par un tribunal d'arbitrage. Caracas ne les a jamais reconnues.

Robert Palladino, porte-parole du Département d'Etat des Etats-Unis, a défendu dimanche, dans un message publié sur Twitter, le "droit" de la Guyane d'"explorer et d'exploiter les ressources de ses eaux territoriales".

Tensions territoriales sur l'offshore du Guyana voisin du Venezuela.

ExxonMobil Faces Off With Venezuela’s Navy

By Irina Slav - Dec 24, 2018

Exxon has suspended exploration activities in the western part of the Stabroek block offshore Guyana after the Venezuelan Navy intercepted this weekend two exploratory vessels in what Caracas claimed was Venezuelan waters, Reuters reports, citing Guyana’s Foreign Ministry.

The Guyanese ministry’s statement claimed the incident had occurred in its territorial waters and slammed Caracas for the interception, which, according to Guyana, “violates the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country.” The statement said Caracas’s behavior threatened Guyana’s economic development and called the interception an “illegal, aggressive and hostile act.” Guyana will report the case to the United Nations.

Caracas, for its part, said it has already told the United Nations about the run-in, which it said was in Venezuelan territory, adding the vessels had turned around after their crews were told they were out of Guyanese jurisdiction.

The territorial dispute between Venezuela and its tiny neighbor Guyana is not new: Caracas has claims to the offshore territory that Guyana opened up for oil exploration even though a tribunal in the past ruled it belonged to Guyana and Caracas initially accepted the ruling.

Now, however, Exxon has discovered as much as 5 billion barrels in reserves in the Stabroek block, which has once again turned the attention of Venezuela to the disputed waters. For the supermajor, Guyana is a top priority after all these discoveries and a recent report by Wood Mackenzie says the tiny nation could become the second-largest oil producer in South America, behind only Brazil, surpassing Venezuela.

In the three years since Exxon won the rights to develop Stabroek, the company, together with its partner Hess Corp., has made 10 sizeable discoveries. There are another 17 prospects yet to be drilled, which could boost the reserve estimate for Stabroek even further.

Commercial production from Stabroek is slated to begin in 2020 at the first production well, Lisa-1, which is expected to pump 120,000 bpd of crude and natural gas.

EXXON lance encore un nouveau forage d'exploration en offshore.
ExxonMobil begins drilling Haimara-1 exploration well, offshore Guyana

1/7/2019

IRVING -- ExxonMobil said today that it has begun drilling the Haimara-1 exploration well offshore Guyana, the first of two planned wells in January. The Stena Carron drillship is drilling the well, which is located 19 mi (31 km) east of the Pluma-1 discovery in the southeast Stabroek Block.

The Noble Tom Madden drillship is expected to drill the second well, Tilapia-1, about 3 mi (5 km) west of the Longtail-1 discovery. The Tilapia-1 well is located in the growing Turbot area.

Encore deux découvertes au Guyana.
Offshore Guyana Partners Hit More Pay

by Matthew V. Veazey|Rigzone Staff|Wednesday, February 06, 2019

Exxon Mobil Corp., Hess Corp. and CNOOC Limited have tallied two more discoveries in the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana.

Hess and ExxonMobil on Wednesday reported discoveries at the Tilapia-1 and Haimara-1 wells in the southeastern part of Stabroek. The discoveries represent the 11th and 12th Stabroek successes, respectively. As Rigzone reported last month, both wells offshore the tiny South American country were wildcats.

“These two discoveries demonstrate the continuing exploration potential on the prolific Stabroek Block and add to the previously announced gross discovered recoverable resource estimate of more than 5 billion barrels of oil equivalent,” Hess CEO John Hess said in a written statement emailed to Rigzone.

Spud Jan. 7 by the Noble Tom Madden drillship, Tilapia-1 encountered approximately 305 feet (93 meters) of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoir to a depth of 18,786 feet (5,726 meters) in 5,850 feet (1,783 meters) of water, ExxonMobil and Hess noted separately. Tilapia-1 is located approximately 3.4 miles (5.5 kilometers) west of the Longtail-1 discovery, and baseline 4-D seismic data acquisition is underway, they added.
......

ExxonMobil and Hess contend that Stabroek’s growing resource base, now estimated at more than 5 billion oil-equivalent barrels, could support at least five floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels producing more than 750,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025. At that level of output, the potential exists for Guyana to produce more than its struggling neighbor – and OPEC member – Venezuela, Bloomberg reported earlier this week.

Tullow, Total and Eco to Drill Offshore Guyana
Project partners Tullow, Total and Eco Atlantic Oil & Gas Ltd. have selected the Joe Well as the second exploration well in the 2019 Guyana offshore drilling program.
Drilling on the second well for the 2019 Guyana offshore drilling program will begin in this summer.

Project partners Tullow Guyana B.V. (operator; 60 percent), Total E&P Activitiés Pétrolières (25 percent) and Eco Atlantic Oil & Gas Ltd. (15 percent) have selected the Joe Well as the second exploration well, Eco confirmed Friday.

The Joe prospect is a 150 million barrels of oil equivalent upper tertiary target with a 43.2 percent chance of success. It’s located in about 650 meters of water.

Colin Kinley, Chief Operating Officer of Eco Atlantic, commented:

“The approval, at this stage, of a second well is a clear indication of the Partners’ risking of Orinduik,” Eco Atlantic COO Colin Kinley said in a release.

“The evaluation of the Orinduik Block is ongoing and we are confident in our ability to prove up oil in the Tertiary aged section that has already been derisked by our neighbors on the Stabroek Block with the Hammerhead discovery,” he added. “We have developed an excellent geological and geophysical model that we continue to build on together with our Partners.”

The partners have contracted the Stena Forth Drillship to drill the well. Drilling is set to begin mid-July.

13ieme découverte de pétrole en offshore au Guyana par Exxon !
Exxon Makes Another Discovery In This New Oil Hotspot

By Tsvetana Paraskova - Apr 19, 2019

ExxonMobil has made its 13th oil discovery in the newest hotspot offshore South America, Guyana, striking oil at the Yellowtail well, which adds to estimated recoverable resource on the Stabroek Block of some 5.5 billion oil-equivalent barrels.

The oil discovery at the Yellowtail-1 well is the fifth discovery in the Turbot area offshore Guyana, which ExxonMobil expects to become a major development hub.

“Similar to the Liza area, successive discoveries in the Turbot area have continuously grown its shared value,” Mike Cousins, senior vice president of ExxonMobil Exploration and New Ventures, said in a statement.

Exxon’s affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited is the operator and holds 45 percent interest in the Stabroek Block, a unit of Hess Corporation owns 30 percent, and a wholly owned subsidiary of CNOOC holds the remaining 25-percent interest.

According to Rystad Energy’s annual exploration review, Exxon was the world’s top oil and gas explorer in 2018, thanks to its significant investment in Guyana.

Exxon has said that there is potential for at least five floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels on the Stabroek Block producing more than 750,000 bpd by 2025.


“Startup of the Liza Phase 1 development is on track to begin by the first quarter of 2020 and will produce up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day utilizing the Liza Destiny FPSO, which is expected to arrive in country in the third quarter,” Exxon said today.


Liza Phase 2 is expected to startup by the middle of 2022, with a final investment decision expected soon and subject to government and regulatory approvals. The Liza Phase 2 project would use a FPSO to produce up to 220,000 bpd, while sanctioning of a third development, Payara, is also expected this year, with start-up planned for 2023.

Exxon is now primarily focused on getting the most of the Permian and of the Guyana discoveries, which are its key growth areas for the coming years.

Pour les habitants du Guyana, avec le pétrole découvert, leur vie va évoluer vers ceux de la Norvège ou ceux du Venezuela ?
Could This Emerging Oil State Become The Richest Nation In The World?

By Irina Slav - May 12, 2019

A tiny South American country until recently known mostly as the location of one of the worst mass suicides in modern history is about to acquire a whole new reputation, and this reputation has to do with its oil wealth.

Guyana, sandwiched between Venezuela and Suriname, has in just a couple of years turned from an empty spot on the international oil map into one of the new hot spots thanks to a series of discoveries offshore, made by Exxon and Hess Corp.

The Stabroek block is the place where the discoveries were made. The first ones came in 2015 and since then, Exxon has been announcing new ones on a more or less regular basis. To date, there have been 12 discoveries, with the reserves associated with them topping 5 billion barrels of oil equivalent.

This is certainly a lot of oil and it could either solve all economic problems of the tiny nation of less than a million people or, as history has sadly proved more than once, become an oil curse. It would all depend on how Guyana handles its future oil wealth.

The BBC’s Simon Maybin noted in an analysis of Guyana’s changing fortunes this week that the country, a former British colony, currently suffers high unemployment and poverty rates. It also has high levels of corruption—a practice that oil wealth has been found to exacerbate more often than not. The billions of dollars in oil revenues to be had also encourage political instability as more groups vie for power and access—preferably exclusive—to the oil dollars.

Already, sings of this political instability are emerging in Guyana, Maybin reports. The coalition in power lost a no-confidence vote last December, but instead of calling elections, which would have been standard procedure, the coalition challenged the result of the vote in court. This has led to demonstrations and a prolonged legal battle that is still not over.

Guyana’s only hope is if it can somehow manage to put a lid on political ambitions and focus on the actual benefits to be reaped when Exxon and Hess begin commercial production, such as improving the living conditions of the poorest Guyanese and reducing unemployment as well as boosting economic growth.

Luckily, Guyana has both good and bad examples to look to. Norway is the best good example of how a nation can use its oil money in a productive way and turn into one of the wealthiest in the world without relying excessively on oil but rather on the smart investments of money from this oil.

And then there’s Guyana’s very own neighbor Venezuela, which is a picture of how it shouldn’t be done, namely by neglecting other sectors of the economy in favor of oil, pouring oil money directly in otherwise good social programs and seeing them crumble along with the economy once oil prices drop. Corruption and the resulting authoritarianism to keep control of the oil money are also among Venezuela’s problems that predate the U.S. sanctions. Now, the country is shaken by a perfect storm that could see its oil production obliterated.

So, the world’s new hot spot could either turn into a new Norway or a new Venezuela, Nigeria, Angola, and a host of other countries for whom oil turned from a blessing into a curse. It seems only time will tell which example the country will follow.

Le Guyana dit qu'il va augmenter les royalties sur le pétrole dans les prochaines enchères.
Guyana Set To Increase Government Royalties In New Oil Licenses

By Tsvetana Paraskova - Jul 03, 2019

Now that Guyana is the new offshore oil hotspot, the South American country is getting ready to lift the government royalties for new oil contracts, after earlier deals had offered handsome shares for the foreign firms that ventured into Guyana’s waters.

Guyana will have to review all royalties for future oil contracts, Mark Bynoe, director at Guyana’s Department of Energy, told Reuters on Wednesday.

“We expect them to be higher than they currently are,” Bynoe said on the sidelines of an energy conference in London.

The country aims to hold a new licensing round next year and expects the new licenses that will be awarded to be under the new royalty terms, according to the Guyanese official, who said that the new oil royalty regime would not affect existing contracts.

Last year, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) was said to have recommended that Guyana’s authorities raise the royalty rates for future oil contracts.

Tullow, Partners Spud Well Offshore Guyana

by Valerie Jones|Rigzone Staff|Friday, July 05, 2019

Tullow Guyana B.V. and partners Total E&P Guyana B.V. and Eco Atlantic Oil & Gas Ltd. have started drilling its first exploration well on the Jethro-Lobe prospect offshore Guyana.
Tullow Guyana B.V. and partners Total E&P Guyana B.V. and Eco Atlantic Oil & Gas Ltd. have started drilling its first exploration well on the Jethro-Lobe prospect offshore Guyana, Eco announced Friday.

Jethro-Lobe, located on the Orinduik Block, was spud July 4 using the Stena Forth drillship. It’s the first prospect of a two-well program and will be immediately followed by the drilling of an exploration well on the Joe prospect.

“Today Eco Atlantic’s first Guyana well has been spud, three years ahead of our Petroleum Agreement commitment. This is the start of a hugely exciting time for the company,” Eco CEO Gil Holzman said in a company statement. “Jethro Lobe will test the Lower Tertiary aged turbidites, as well drilling down into the Cretaceous…with fifteen leads and prospects identified on the Orinduik Block, and funding to drill six potential exploration wells beyond the two currently planned, this is only the start of a fascinating and potentially transformational time for the Company.”

Tullow is the operator of the Orinduik Block and holds a 60 percent working interest. Total has a 25 percent working interest and Eco holds 15 percent working interest. The companies estimate the well will take up to 40 days to drill.

Qatar Petroleum s'invite au Guyana avec l'aide de Total.
Qatar Petroleum Expands Reach into Guyana

by Matthew V. Veazey|Rigzone Staff , July 29, 2019

Qatar Petroleum Expands Reach into Guyana
QP will obtain a share of exploration and production rights in two offshore Guyana blocks.
Qatar Petroleum (QP) reported Monday that it has signed an agreement with Total S.A. to obtain a share of exploration and production rights in two offshore Guyana blocks.

The agreement, subject to regulatory approvals, would give QP 40 percent of Total’s existing 25-percent interests in the Orinduik and neighboring Kanuku blocks, QP stated. Tullow Oil operates Orinduik and holds a 60-percent participating interest in that block, which is also owned by EcoAtlantic (15 percent). Tullow and Repsol (operator) each own a 37.5-percent interest in Kanuku.

The 695-square-mile (1,800-square-kilometer) Orinduik block is located 75 miles (120 kilometers) offshore Guyana and boasts water depths ranging from 230 to 4,593 feet (70 to 1,400) meters, QP stated. The state-owned firm added that Kanuku – located 62 miles (100 kilometers) offshore – encompasses approximately 2,007 square miles (5,200 square kilometers) with 230- to 2,625-foot (70- to 800-meter) water depths.

“We are pleased to expand our global exploration footprint into Guyana together with our valuable, long-term partner, Total, in these offshore blocks in this prospective basin,” Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, QP’s president and CEO and Qatar’s Minister of State for Energy Affairs, said in a company statement.

QP also noted that three exploration wells are planned in the blocks this year: two in Orinduik, including the Jethro well that is currently being drilled, and one in Kanuku. As Rigzone reported earlier this month, Tullow, Total and EcoAtlantic launched the two-well Orinduik program with the July 4 spudding of the Jethro-Lobe prospect.

“We hope that the exploration efforts are successful,” stated Al-Kaabi. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners and the government of Guyana for their collaboration in this effort, and we look forward to working together in these blocks.”

Guyana : une "importante" découverte de pétrole près des côtes
La compagnie pétrolière britannique Tullow Oil a annoncé, lundi 12 août, une découverte "importante" au large du Guyana.


BOURSORAMA AVEC AFP SERVICES•12/08/2019

C'est un forage heureux pour la compagnie Tullow Oil, qui laisse espérer des ressources plus importantes que ce qui avait été prévu.

Ce bloc dont Total détient une part minoritaire avait un potentiel alors évalué à 100 millions de barils récupérables. Il pourrait être finalement beaucoup plus grand.

Le groupe britannique détient 60% des parts de bloc nommé Orinduik, aux côtés de Total (25%) et de la société Eco (Atlantic) Guyana (15%).

Le Qatar à l'affût
De son côté, le Qatar a annoncé, fin juillet, être en discussion avec Total pour acquérir 40% des parts détenues par le pétrolier français dans ce bloc, situé à 120 km au large des côtes de ce pays d'Amérique du Sud.

Paul McDade, directeur général de Tullow Oil, a qualifié cette découverte de pétrole d'"importante et de grande valeur". Selon lui, "c'est un excellent début pour notre campagne de forage au Guyana".

La société britannique, cotée à la Bourse de Londres, va désormais évaluer les données recueillies pour estimer plus précisément le potentiel de la découverte.

La nouvelle a été saluée par le marché: l'action de Tullow Oil bondissait de 17,09% à 209,70 pence dans la matinée de lundi.

Pioneering FPSO Reaches Offshore Guyana Block

by Matthew V. Veazey|Rigzone Staff|Friday, August 30, 2019

The Liza FPSO concludes its journey from Singapore. PHOTO SOURCE: Hess Corp.


After a 42-day journey from Singapore, the Liza Destiny floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel has arrived at the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana, Hess Corp. reported Thursday afternoon.

Hess pointed out the FPSO – Guyana’s first oil production vessel – will be used to deploy the Liza Phase 1 development, which will tie back to the FPSO 17 wells across four undersea drill centers.

“After clearing customer, hookup and installation of the Liza Destiny FPSO will begin,” Hess noted in a written statement emailed to Rigzone. “The Liza Phase 1 development is on track for startup by the first quarter of 2020 and will produce up to 120,000 gross barrels of oil per day.”

Hess owns a 30-percent interest in the 6.6-million-acre (26,800-square-kilometer) Stabroek Block. Other participants include ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (45 percent interest and operator) and CNOOC Petroleum Guyana Limited (25 percent).

According to ExxonMobil’s website, Liza Phase 1 is located approximately 118 miles (190 kilometers) offshore Guyana in water depths ranging from 4,921 to 6,234 feet (1,500 to 1,900 meters). The operator noted that it expects the 17-well subsea system to include eight production wells, six water injection wells and three gas injection wells.

SBM Offshore began the conversion of the very large crude carrier “Tina” into the Liza Destiny FPSO at the Keppel shipyard in Singapore in November 2017, the company states on its website. According to SBM Offshore, Liza Destiny can store 1.6 million barrels of crude oil, treat approximately 170 million cubic feet per day of associated gas and boasts a water injection capacity of roughly 200,000 barrels per day (bpd).

ExxonMobil and Hess have stated the Stabroek Block could support up to five FPSOs producing more than 750,000 bpd by 2025.
