Drilling operations at the Jaguar-1 well in the Georgetown Block, Guyana, in South America have ended and the well will be plugged and abandoned at a depth of 4,876 m (15,997), without reaching the primary objective, Tullow Oil announced.
The decision to stop drilling at this point was unanimously agreed by all partners based on safety criteria and was taken after reaching a point in the well where the pressure design limits for safe operations prevented further drilling to the main objective.
Jaguar-1 was a high pressure, high temperature well which was spudded in February 2012 using the Atwood Beacon rig. While the primary Late Cretaceous objective was not reached, samples of light oil were successfully recovered from two Late Cretaceous turbidite sands above the primary objective.
