Guyana: Interrupted deepwater wildcat respudded

By OGJ editors

CGX Energy Inc., Toronto, has respudded the Eagle-1 exploratory well offshore Guyana that was halted in June 2000 due to overlapping maritime border claims between Guyana and Suriname.

Eagle-1, on the company’s 100% owned and operated Corentyne petroleum prospecting license, is to go to 4,250 m to test the Eocene and Maastrichtian geologic zones. The Ocean Saratoga semisubmersible is handling the 60-day assignment.

Following peaceful resolution of the boundary dispute, CGX has shot two 3D seismic surveys, creating a portfolio of prospects on the Corentyne PPL, Eagle-1 being the first well to be drilled to test the original Eocene prospect, plus a deeper Maastrichtian prospect, both of which are stratigraphic tests.
