The discoveries at Tilapia-1 and Haimara-2 build on the previously announced estimated recoverable resource of more than five billion oil-equivalent barrels in the Stabroek Block.
ExxonMobil said that Tilapia-1 is the fourth discovery in the Turbot area that includes the Turbot, Longtail and Pluma discoveries.
“Tilapia-1 encountered approximately 305 feet (93 meters) of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoir and was drilled to a depth of 18,786 feet (5,726 meters) in 5,850 feet (1,783 meters) of water,” the oil giant explained. The well is located approximately 3.4 miles (5.5 kilometres) west of the Longtail-1 well.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
