TORONTO – The drillship Stena Forth has spudded the second exploration well in the Orinduik block offshore Guyana, targeting the Joe prospect.

According to partner Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas, the well should take around three weeks to drill.

Joe is an Upper Tertiary feature in 700 m (2,297 ft) of water on the northern part of the block, with potential resources estimated at 148.3 MMboe.

The same rig drilled the Jethro discovery earlier this month in the Lower Tertiary.
