CGX Energy Obtains Extension For Spudding Of Wei-1 From Goverment Of Guyana

CGX Energy (TSXV: OYL) this morning in partnership with Frontera Energy (TSX: FEC) announced that they have received an extension for spudding the Wei-1 exploration well following delays to the spudding of the well. The well is set to be drilled off the coast of Guyana.

The firm this morning presented the news as having a “continued commitment” to drill the well, with final preparations now said to be complete in advance of spudding. However, delays have caused the joint venture to obtain an extension from the Government of Guyana for its required “spud-by” date for the well. The well was previously required to have been spud by November 27, with that date now extended to January 31, 2023.

The delay appears to be related to the availability of the drilling rig that is to be supplied by NobleCorp, which has been delayed by certain obligations it holds in Trinidad. The revised timeline now forsees the spudding of the Wei-1 well occurring sometime between December and late January, in-line with the extension received from the Government of Guyana.
