Hess Corporation announced that drilling has begun on the Haimara-1 exploration well offshore Guyana, the first of two planned exploration wells in January. The Stena Carron drillship is drilling the Haimara-1 well, located 31 km east of the Pluma-1 discovery in the southeastern part of the Stabroek Block. The Noble Tom Madden drillship will drill the second well, Tilapia-1, located 5 km west of the Longtail-1 discovery. The Tilapia-1 well is located in the Turbot area. The resource base on the Stabroek Block underpins the potential for at least five floating, production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessels producing more than 750,000 B/D by 2025. ExxonMobil plans to deploy a seismic vessel operated by Petroleum Geo-Services to the Turbot area to acquire 4D seismic data, similar to a 4D campaign conducted in the Liza area in 2017.
