Eco (Atlantic) has bagged an 'elephant' at Orinduik, offshore Guyana, believes CEO Holzman
Gil Holzman, Eco (Atlantic)’s chief executive (LON:ECO) is super-excited about the start of drilling at Orinduik next year, with offshore Guyana set to become a huge new oil address he believes.
It’s the ‘elephant -size’ asset we were looking for when we took on the licence, he says, adding that if a well is drilled next year it will be three and half years ahead of schedule.
With an estimated 3bn barrels of recoverable, Eco’s 15% take is worth roughly US$2bn at currently prices.
Operator Tullow and Total, its other partner, are keen to move forward as fast as possible, which might even mean more than one well being drilled and tested in 2019.
