Drilling Activity Summary


Frontera Energy and CGX have scheduled exploration well #1-Kawa in offshore Guyana in the northeast quadrant of the Corentyne block. Area water depth is approximately 355 m and the planned depth of the venture is 6,685 m. The well will be targeting light oil in combination structural-stratigraphic traps in large Santonian and Campanian slope fan complexes. The primary target is a Santonian Sand with updip and lateral pinch-out of the reservoir, and a counter-regional dip and structural closure. The venture is also expected to penetrate secondary objectives in a shallower Campanian Sand and a deeper Santonian Sand with additional hydrocarbon potential. According to the Calgary-based company, the stacked targets in #1-Kawa are considered analogous to the discoveries immediately adjacent to the Corentyne Block in Block 58 in Suriname. The #1-Kawa is expected to de-risk multiple other prospects on the block, which also have stacked reservoirs and similar structural geometries.
