Offshore supply ship HOS Brass Ring is one of several vessels supporting an Environmental Baseline and Geotechnical Survey operation at the ExxonMobil-operated Stabroek Block offshore Guyana. The vessel departed from Carenage, Trinidad and Tobago, last Wednesday and arrived in Guyana at the weekend.
The survey area is situated approximately 82.70 nautical miles (153.1 kilometers) offshore and covers an area of 1427.74 square nautical miles (4897.01 square kilometers).
Exxon has made over 30 discoveries at the Stabroek Block since 2015, amounting to more than 11 billion barrels of oil equivalent resources.
The 6.6 million acres block has been hailed as one of the most unprecedented exploration blocks of all time by Norway-based Rystad Energy.
