Tullow makes discovery offshore French Guyana

After recent speculation in French media, Tullow Oil plc has announced that the Zaedyus-2 appraisal well (GM-ES-2), offshore French Guiana, has completed drilling. The well encountered a total of 255 feet of reservoir quality sands with oil shows in several objectives but did not encounter commercial hydrocarbons.
The Zaedyus-2 well was drilled in the Guyane Maritime license using the Stena DrillMax Dynamically Positioned Drillship. The second well in this four-well program is Priodontes-1, targeting an adjacent prospect within the same Cingulata fan system, which is expected to begin drilling in early December.
“While the Zaedyus-2 well has not proved an up-dip extension of the Zaedyus discovery towards the apex of the fan, the well has provided very valuable data for the exploration and appraisal strategy of the Cingulata fan system going forward,” said Exploration Director, Angus McCoss.
“The French Guiana block remains highly prospective, particularly down-dip and still offer excellent potential for multiple exploration successes. These early lessons learned by the joint venture are being incorporated into our ongoing well campaign.”
