Hess made the oil discovery through the Esox-1 exploration well in late October 2019. The well was drilled in 4,609 feet (1,405 meters) of water and encountered approximately 191 net feet (58 meters) of high quality oil bearing Miocene reservoirs.

The company said on Wednesday it had completed the Esox-1 oil discovery located in Mississippi Canyon Block No. 726 in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

Hess also said that the well would be brought online in February as a low cost tieback to the Tubular Bells production facilities. Esox-1 is located approximately 6 miles (10 kilometers) east of the Tubular Bells.

Hess Corporation is operator and holds 57.14% interest in Esox and its partners Chevron and Ecopetrol each hold a 21.43% interest.
