Angus McCoss, Survey Director, said: "I am very pleased that we have made the back-and-forth discoveries in the ground, and the discoveries in the back-and-back discoveries. in the Guyana Basin with our second well, the Joe-1 discovery and its prospects represent another area of significant potential in the Orinduik block, and we look forward to the next phase of the program as we continue to unlock the multi-billion potential barrels in this area.

Joe-1 exploration well was drilled by the Stena Forth drilling vessel, and evaluation of logging and sampling data has confirmed that Joe-1 has met 14 meters of net oil in high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs of upper tertiary age. Joe is the first the oil discovery made in the upper tertiary, Tullow Oil said, and robs the risk of the petroleum system west of the Orinduik block, where a significant number of tertiary and Cretan age prospects have been identified.
Explorers, along with their partners, said they are now will evaluate data from the Joe-1 discovery along with data from the Jethro-1 discovery announced in August 2019 and await the outcome of the Carapa well to determine the optimal exploration and assessment program.
