Hess, which is a part of a consortium with ExxonMobil and China’s CNOOC Ltd, has made 18 discoveries totalling some 8 billion bbl of recoverable oil and gas in Guyana’s massive Stabroek block, southwest of Kaieteur.
Hess forecast net production to average about 310 000 boe/d in 2021, excluding Libya, compared with 2020 estimate of 325 000 boe/d.
For 2020, the New York-based energy company estimated to spend US$1.8 billion.
The company will also add a rig in the Bakken shale play in 1Q21, which operated just a single rig there since May in its efforts to slash production to cope with last year’s oil price crash. It had six rigs in the Bakken at the start of last year.
