…company to add another exploration vessel offshore Guyana Exxon’s Stena Carron drillshipExxonMobil in a statement on Wednesday said it made its eighth oil discovery offshore Guyana at the Longtail-1 well, creating the potential for additional resource development in the southeast area of the Stabroek Block.According to the US based oil giant, the Stena Carron drillship commenced drilling on May 25, 2018 and the Longtail-1 well was safely drilled to 18,057 feet (5,504 meters) depth in 6,365 feet (1,940 meters) of water, where they subsequently encountered approximately 256 feet (78 meters) of high-quality, oil-bearing sandstone reservoir.“The Longtail discovery is in close proximity to the Turbot discovery southeast of the Liza field,” said Steve Greenlee, president of the ExxonMobil Exploration Company.He explained that the “Longtail drilling results are under evaluation. However, the combined estimated recoverable resources of Turbot and Longtail will exceed 500 million barrels of oil equivalent, and will contribute to the evaluation of development options in this eastern portion of the block.”ExxonMobil said it is currently making plans to add a second exploration vessel offshore Guyana in addition to the Stena Carron drillship, bringing its total number of drillships on the Stabroek Block to three.“The new vessel will operate in parallel to the Stena Carron to explore the block’s numerous high-value prospects.”According to the oil giant, the Noble Bob Douglas is completing initial stages of development drilling for Liza Phase 1, for which they announced a funding decision in 2017.Moreover, in explaining the timeline of its production output the company posited that “Phase 1 will consist of 17 wells connected to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel designed to produce up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day. First oil is expected in early 2020. Phase 2 concepts are similar to Phase 1 and involve a second FPSO with production capacity of 220,000 barrels per day. A third development, Payara, is planned to follow Liza Phase 2.”According to ExxonMobil, “Guyanese businesses, contractors and employees continue to play an important role in ExxonMobil’s operations in the country. ExxonMobil and project partners spent $24 million with more than 300 local suppliers in 2017 and opened the Centre for Local Business Development in the capital city of Georgetown to promote the establishment and growth of small- and medium-sized local businesses.“ExxonMobil’s priorities in Guyana are focused on enabling local workforce and supplier development and collaborating with government to support the growth and success of its economy, both in the energy and non-energy sectors.”The Stabroek Block is 6.6 million acres (26,800 square kilometers). Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited is the operator and holds 45 per cent interest in the Stabroek Block.Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd. holds 30 per cent interest and CNOOC Nexen Petroleum Guyana Limited holds 25 per cent interest.

Shani Davis of the U.S., left, and Koen Verweij of the Netherlands rest after competing in the men’s 1,000-meter speedskating race at the Adler Arena Skating Center during the 2014 Winter Olympics, in Sochi, Russia, Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Shani Davis went from sure thing to nothing in 2½ laps.The two-time defending Olympic champion in the 1,000 meters got shut out of a medal on Wednesday, finishing eighth in a race he has dominated in recent years.Now, the 31-year-old from Chicago has three days to clear his mind and make adjustments before he skates in the 1,500 on Saturday at Adler Arena.Davis was one of the U.S. speedskating team’s best hopes for a gold medal. The Americans have yet to make the podium through the first five days of competition.“It’s unfortunate for us,” he said. “Now we move forward and try to figure out what we can possibly do to fix it.”Davis has never won the 1,500 at the Olympics, earning silver medals in 2006 and 2010. But it’s his other strong event, one of his “babies” as he calls the two sprint races.Davis planned to study video of the loss to “see what these guys were doing that I wasn’t doing.”“I just got to try to piece it together and figure it out for myself so I can possibly fix it for the 1,500,” he said.In the 1,000, Davis had a slower opening than gold medalist Stefan Groothuis of the Netherlands, and then lost 0.35 in the first full lap. He slowed in the final lap and finished in 1 minute, 9.12 seconds. Racing against Davis, Dutchman Koen Verweij overtook the American at the finish line in the next-to-last pairing.“Watching it was agonizing,” said Canadian Gilmore Junio, who gave up his spot in the race to teammate Denny Morrison, who took the silver.Groothuis won in 1:08.39, more than seven-tenths of a second ahead of Davis. Michel Mulder of the Netherlands earned the bronze to go with his gold from the 500.“I think a lot of people were shocked with how fast the times were,” Brian Hansen said.He and the other Americans fared worse than Davis.Hansen of Glenview, Ill., finished ninth, Joey Mantia of Ocala, Fla., was 15th and Jonathan Garcia of Houston was 28th.“We have a lot of depth in this race,” said Hansen, who became nauseous after his race. “We didn’t show it out there, but we do.”Besides Davis, Hansen and Mantia, Jonathan Kuck of Champaign, Ill., will skate in the 1,500.“I can’t let it get me down because I have other races to skate,” Davis said, “but I’m pretty sad about it.”
