Hess today announced a ninth oil discovery offshore Guyana at the Hammerhead-1 well, marking its fifth oil discovery on the Stabroek Block in the past year and proving a new play concept for potential development.

Hammerhead-1 encountered approximately 197 feet (60 meters) of high-quality, oil-bearing sandstone reservoir. The well was safely drilled to 13,862 feet (4,225 meters) depth in 3,773 feet (1,150 meters) of water. The Stena Carron drillship began drilling on July 27, 2018.

“Hammerhead is another significant oil discovery that further demonstrates the tremendous prospectivity of the Stabroek Block, where we continue to see multi billion barrels of additional exploration potential,” CEO  John Hess  said. “This ninth discovery further enhances our potential to maximize value through rapid phased development.”
