Repsol SA drilled a dry hole at the Beebei-Potaro exploration well in the Kanuku license, offshore Guyana, according to an Aug. 5 release by Tullow Oil PLC.
The Noble Regina Allen rig drilled the well to 4,325 m TD in 71 m of water. The well encountered good quality reservoir in the primary and secondary targets but both targets were water-bearing. The well has been plugged.
Repsol and partners will integrate the well results into its regional subsurface models and work with its joint venture partners before deciding on next steps.
Repsol is operator of Kanuku (37.5%) with partners Tullow Oil PLC (37.5%) and TOQAP (25%).
