ExxonMobil Guyana Ushers in 2024 with New Offshore Discovery at Bluefin

In an exciting development marking the onset of 2024, ExxonMobil Guyana has unveiled its latest underwater treasure – a significant hydrocarbon find at the Bluefin site within the prolific Stabroek block. This discovery, the company’s first for the year, accentuates its sustained exploration success offshore Guyana.

Drilled to a depth of 4,244 feet (1,294 metres) by the adept Stena Drillmax drillship, the Bluefin well has revealed approximately 197 feet (60 metres) of hydrocarbon-laden sandstone. Strategically positioned about 8.5 kilometres southeast of the Sailfin-1 well, this new find is nestled in the southeastern corridor of the vast Stabroek block.

Alistair Routledge, President of ExxonMobil Guyana, shared his enthusiasm over the discovery, “Our ongoing exploration efforts are continually enhancing our grasp of the block’s potential, paving the way for robust oil-and-gas ventures. The Bluefin discovery is a testament to our dedicated team’s expertise, cutting-edge technology, and unwavering commitment to fostering sustainable value from Guyana’s rich natural resources.”

With this latest achievement, Bluefin joins the ranks of over 30 significant discoveries made on the Stabroek block since 2015, further cementing ExxonMobil Guyana’s role in the nation’s burgeoning energy sector.
