This discovery significantly de-risks other Tertiary age prospects on the Orinduik licence, including the shallower Upper Tertiary Joe prospect which will commence drilling later this month following the conclusion of operations at the Jethro-1 well. The non-operated Carapa 1 well will be drilled, later this year, on the adjacent Kanuku licence to test the Cretaceous oil play.
Tullow Guyana B.V. is the operator of the Orinduik block with a 60% stake. Total E and P Guyana B.V. holds 25% with the remaining 15% being held by Eco(Atlantic) Guyana Inc. ■
