ExxonMobil has put its seismic operations in the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana on hold “until they can be safely continued.”

In a statement , the American oil giant said 3-D seismic data acquisition of the western portion of the Stabroek Block began earlier this month.

There are reports that the company’s contracted firm PGS , encountered the Venezuelan military during its operations.

“Our main concern is for the safety of crew members and others in the area. ExxonMobil is in communication with the necessary authorities,” Exxon said.

Norwegian geophysical company , PGS is contracted by Exxon to conduct the 3-D seismic data acquisition on behalf of the company.

PGS provides images and 3D data about the subsurface beneath the ocean floor. This assists oil companies in undertaking oil finds.
