Hess To Tie Back Deepwater US Gulf Oil Discovery

Hess will tie back its Esox-1 oil discovery in the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico to its Tubular Bells facilities and begin production in first-quarter 2020.

Drilled in 1405 m of water, the Esox-1 well encountered 58 m of high-quality oil-bearing Miocene reservoirs, the company said. Esox-1 is located on Mississippi Canyon Block No. 726 and is 10 km east of the Tubular Bells production facilities.

“We are delighted with the success of the Esox well, which demonstrates the value of our infrastructure-led exploration program in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico,” said Hess Chief Executive Officer John Hess in a news release.

Production from Tubular Bells started up in 2014. It lies in 1310 m of water 217 km southeast of New Orleans.

Hess is operator of Mississippi Canyon Block 724 with a 57.14% interest. Chevron holds a 42.86% stake.
