Total Bought 25% in Orinduik Block Offshore Guyana

Posted by September 14, 2018

Total says has exercised option to buy a 25 pct interest in Orinduik exploration block offshore Guyana.

* Orinduik operated by Tullow Oil (TUWLF) off Guyana contains an estimated 3 billion barrels of oil and gas, its partner Eco Atlantic said on Tuesday, as the two firms prepare to drill in the Latin American oil basin.

* Tullow plans to begin drilling in the block in the third quarter of 2019, with Eco indicating it will begin "early" in the quarter.

* Guyana became one of the world's most closely watched oil basins after Exxon Mobil (XOM) discovered more than 4 billion barrels of oil equivalent in its Stabroek licence in recent years.
