Tallow oil well abandoned in Guyana after disastrous drilling results


August 5, 2022

Tullow Oil announced on Friday that it is suspending drilling operations at the Bebei-Potaro exploration well offshore Guyana.

The group, which owns 37.5% of the Kanuku block with wells, said it would work with joint venture partners before deciding on next steps.

Spain’s Repsol, which operates the Kanuku license, and TOQAP, a JV between TotalEnergies and Qatar Petroleum, own the rest of the block.

Noble Regina Allen’s rig drilled the Bebei-Potaro well to a depth of 4325 meters in 71 meters of water, but the well was plugged and abandoned.

London-based Tullow Oil said the wells still showed “good quality reservoirs” at primary and secondary targets. “Both targets contained water, although good reservoirs were often encountered on primary and secondary targets,” it said.

Tullow integrates well results into local subsurface models and works with joint venture partners before deciding on next steps.
