During the time he was Exploration Manager for South America he was responsible for the identification and capture of the Stabroek Block in Guyana which is the subject of his talk.

Guyana – 10 billion barrels and counting

In 2015 ExxonMobil discovered oil in the Stabroek Block in the deep water of Guyana, South America.  Subsequent discoveries have resulted in announced reserves of 10+ billion barrels.

First oil commenced in December 2019 with a second development coming on line this February. Current production capacity is 340,000 barrels per day.

This talk will describe
– The rationale for the pursuit of this opportunity in 1997
– A detailed review of the Lisa discovery

Lastly the talk will make some observations relative to the pursuit of frontier acreage opportunities
