Tullow announced that drilling operations have commenced on the Zaedyus prospect with well GM-ES-1 in the Guyane Maritime permit.
The ENSCO 8503 semisub will drill the GM-ES-1 well to a total depth of 6500 meters, targeting one of several prospects in major undrilled Late Cretaceous deep water channel fan systems. Tullow believes that the prospect has an estimated P10 prospective resource of 700 million barrels and is geologically analogous to its Jubilee field, located off the coast of Ghana.
Zaedyus is located offshore Guyane about 50 kilometers from the boundary with Brazil. The partners in the Guyane Maritime license are Tullow (operator, 27.5%), Shell (45%), Total (25%), and Northpet Investments Limited (2.5%).
