Drilling Activity Summary


Tullow Oil announced results from exploration well #1-Jethro in the offshore Guyana Orinduik Block. The well was drilled to 4,400 m and encountered 55 m of net oil pay in a high-quality, oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs of Lower Tertiary. Tullow will evaluate the find and will plan an appraisal program. The discovery de-risks other Tertiary age prospects within the Orinduik license area, including the shallower Upper Tertiary Joe Prospect which will be drilled after operations are complete at #1-Jethro on the adjacent Kanuku Block to test the Cretaceous oil play. London-based Tullow is the operator of the Orinduik Block and #1-Jethro discovery well with 60% interest. Total holds 25% with the remaining 15% being held by Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas.
