Wintershall Dea Makes Significant Oil Discoveries in Mexico

Wintershall Dea and its license partners have made two significant oil discoveries on the Polok and the Chinwol prospects in Block 29 offshore Mexico, according to a press release.

The Polok-1 exploration well was drilled to a total depth of 2,620 meters and encountered more than 200 meters of net oil pay from two zones in the lower Miocene. The Chinwol-1 exploration well was drilled to a total depth of 1,850 meters and encountered 150 meters of net oil pay from three zones in the lower Pliocene.

Polok and Chinwol are the first announced discoveries from a block, awarded in Mexico’s deep water round 2.4. back in 2018.

Juan Manuel Delgado, Managing Director for Wintershall Dea’s Mexican business, said: “This is a great success. We have had a strong belief that discoveries like these could be made here. The Polok and Chinwol discoveries are a strong evidence of the oil potential of the Salina Basin. Opening a new play there, we are confident to further unlocking additional resources in Block 29 and the wider Wintershall Dea license portfolio.”

The Block 29 partners are Wintershall Dea (25%), Repsol (operator, 30%), PC Carigali Mexico Operations S.A de C.V., the Mexican subsidiary of PETRONAS (28.33%) and PTTEP Mexico E&P Limited, S. de R.L. de C.V. (16.67%).
