Repsol announces strike in Trinidad

Repsol has made a new hydrocarbons discovery in the Teak field, offshore Trinidad and Tobago, in the TSP block east of the island of Trinidad. The find in the TB14 well has upgraded the northern portion of the Teak B field that was not known to exist before. The newly-discovered area is estimated to contain over 40 million barrels of oil in place, which increases the field’s current reserves, extends its productive life and adds new output. The TB14 drilling program was carried out using Seadrill’s ‘West Freedom’ jackup rig. Repsol operates the field with a 70% interest, partnered by co-venturers Petroleum Company of Trinidad and Tobago (Petrotrin) and The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago (NGC), with a 15% stake each. Repsol and its partners are carrying out a drilling campaign to add new resources and production to the TSP block, which has been producing since the 1970s. The programme includes new drilling throughout 2014. The TB14 well, which has produced 1,200 barrels of oil a day in testing, adds to the start-up in June of the TB13 well, which added 1,384 bopd to the field’s output. The new wells add 24% to the block’s existing production, which averaged 10,900 bopd during 2013. The drilling programmes in Trinidad and Tobago have been benefitted by fiscal reforms implemented by the government in the last few years to incentivise exploration and production in mature fields. This has resulted in increased rig activity, additional production and new reserves. Repsol and its partners continue to work in the area, expecting to complete at least two more wells during the current year, with further drilling scheduled for the following years. Repsol has boosted its exploratory activity in the last few years with significant success, with more than 50 discoveries since 2008, including some of the world’s largest finds in the period. In 2013, Repsol posted the highest reserve replacement rate amongst its peers at 275%, which also beat the company’s own reserve addition targets for a third consecutive year to reach a total 1.515 billion barrels of oil equivalent.

Seadrill secures Venezuela contract for 'West Freedom' jackup rig

Seadrill has announced that the company has been awarded a new 30 month drilling contract for the ‘West Freedom’ jackup rig. The contract has been signed with Cardon IV Venezuela, a joint venture between Eni and Repsol and is worth an initial US$222 million including US$8.5 million for the mobilisation of the unit to Venezuela, after it finishes its current contract in Qatar in September 2013. The contract also includes a 6-month option for the extension of the contract at a rate that is to be mutually agreed upon.
