TORONTO – WesternGeco’s R/V GECO Eagle has started shooting a 2,550-sq km (984-sq mi) 3D seismic survey over the Orinduik block offshore Guyana for Tullow Oil and Eco Atlantic (Guyana).

The program, supported by two other vessels, should be completed within 50 days.

The Orinduik block is updip and a few kilometers from ExxonMobil’s recentdeepwater Liza and Payara oil discoveries, estimated to hold 2-2.5 Bbbl recoverable.

Tullow and Eco Atlantic have completed the first phase of exploration on their block, including evaluating all existing and regional 2D data.

Both have agreed to accelerate and expand the survey from the originally proposed 1,000 sq km (386 sq mi) in order to cover the entire block area, fully overlapping prospective 2D leads and downdip trends.
