The results of the much-anticipated Jethro Lobe wildcat drilling by Tullow will be revealed in mid-August according to Canadian based project partner Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas.

Tullow hopes to share in some of the success already enjoyed by US major, Exxon. Tullow previously indicated that the Jethro- Lobe field may share some common geology to Exxon’s Hammerhead field in the Stabroek block. 

The feature appears to extend to below the Jethro- Lobe field. 

The Jethro-Lobe prospect is in the Orinduik Block offshore Guyana and was completed using the Stena Forth drillship.

The cost of drilling Jethro-1 was estimated at $7m.
