ExxonMobil gets mixed drilling results offshore Guyana

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – An ExxonMobil-operated exploration well on the Skipjack prospect offshore Guyana was unsuccessful, according to partner Hess.

However, the partners’ Liza-3 appraisal well on the Stabroek block delivered sound results. Hess expects estimated recoverable resources to be at the upper end of the previously announced range of 800 MMboe-1.4 Bboe.

At the Joint Development Area of Malaysia/Thailand (Hess 50%), the operator shut down the field during 3Q to commission the booster compressor project.

As for the North Malay Basin project offshore Malaysia, installation has been completed of the topsides at three remote wellhead platforms, and development drilling operations continue.

First gas from the full field development is set for 3Q 2017.

In the North Sea, Hess’ net production from the Aker BP-operated Valhall field was down this summer, due mainly to a reduced drilling program.

The same applied at the Hess-operated South Arne field in the Danish North Sea, following a planned maintenance shutdown.
