In 2017 we extended our reach along the Atlantic Margin by securing acreage in Mexico. Since then we have actively expanded our position in-country, and have working interests in four blocks in the Gulf of Mexico, two as operator (Blocks 9 and 15) and two as non-operator (Blocks 7 and 10).
We completed a 2020 drilling programme in Mexico in Q1 with an oil discovery on the non-operated Saasken-1 exploration well in Block 10. The JV is working to appraise the discovery and to exploit nearby synergies in order to assess the potential for commercial development.
Drilling of a second exploration well by the Operator, Eni on the Sayulita prospect in Block 10, close to the 2020 Saasken oil discovery, concluded in July 2021, successfully finding oil.
