Guyana Guyana exploration basin

Report summary

The Liza discovery was the largest oil discovery in 2015 and has significantly de-risked the Cretaceous Tertiary play, proving the existence of a working petroleum system in this portion of the basin. We expect exploration in this basin to ramp as the potential for material discoveries and material value creation is favourably high. The Guyana Basin is predominantly an offshore basin, stretching across the waters of Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana. The basin shares many similarities with emerging hydrocarbon plays on the Atlantic Margin of West Africa, including offshore Ghana, where the giant Jubilee discovery was made.
