Exploration Watch: 2019 exploration wells

Published on 31-01-2019 10:32:40

Worldwide exploration continued to be dominated by ExxonMobil’s ongoing success offshore Guyana, with five discovery wells and the opening up of two new plays. In 2019, this activity will continue, but will be joined by two separate efforts led by Tullow Oil and Repsol that will look to extend this success to the inboard Orinduik and Kanuku blocks. In Latin America attention will also be focused on Mexico, as drilling extends into deeper waters alongside further exploration of the shallower Sureste Basin. In the North Sea, potential high impact wells in the Barents Sea and West of Shetland were deferred into 2019 and activity looks set to increase in these areas this year. Onshore, we look at high impact wells in the Nanushuk trend of Alaska’s North Slope and the frontier region of Western Mongolia. Click here for full report
