Guyana watch: Exploration well, gas to power project, waste facility

Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas and Westmount Energy reported that the Jabillo-1 exploration well at Guyana offshore block Canje did not encounter commercial hydrocarbons.

Jabillo-1 is in 2,903m of water and was drilled to 6,475m using the Stena Carron drillship.

The companies expect the next Canje well - Sapote-1 - to be spud next month using the Stena DrillMAX vessel with results due in October.

Eco and Westmount hold interests in JHI Associates which has a 17.5% stake in Canje, while ExxonMobil subsidiary Esso Exploration & Production Guyana (EEPGL) holds a 35% operating interest, TotalEnergies E&P Guyana 35%, and Mid-Atlantic Oil & Gas 12.5%.


For its part, EEPGL will hold 13 in person and virtual meetings this month as part of environmental permitting for its planned gas-to-power project.

In recent days, the ExxonMobil unit submitted an environmental authorization request to Guyana’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the project’s onshore natural gas liquids and natural gas processing plant and onshore and offshore pipelines.

The meetings will run July 6-22, according to an EEPGL notice.


And following public consultation, the EPA confirmed its decision that Global Oil Environmental Service’s proposed waste treatment facility does not require an environmental impact assessment.
