Noble Energy says that its West Tapir exploration well on Block 30 offshore Suriname did not contain commercial hydrocarbons. Located in 300 feet of water, the well was drilled to a total depth of 12,700 feet. Noble Energy holds a non-operated 45 percent working interest in Block 30. The well was drilled using the Sovereign Explorer.
Rodney Cook, Senior Vice President of International, said, "West Tapir is the first well to be drilled offshore Suriname in over 20 years and the drilling results will allow us to evaluate and improve our understanding of the basin. We will incorporate the findings into our geological and geophysical interpretations, which will influence our risk assessment of the remaining prospects."
