Guyanese Head of State David Granger and President of US oil and gas company ExxonMobile Stephen Greenlee met to assess the expansion of oil drilling operations in waters off the Essequibo region, an area claimed by Venezuela.

A spokesperson from the Guyanese government told Efe on Thursday that Granger met with Greenlee and an Exxon Mobile board to know of the progress this company has achieved over the South American territory.

"I have talked to the (Guyanese) president about our progress on the Stabroek bloc, as we are preparing for a second drilling campaign," Greenlee said, according to a communiqué issued by the Guyanese government, Efe reported.

"Last year, we made a discovery offshore Guyana and it is very promising, so we want to follow up with data collection, to understand the size and the commerciality of the discovery," Greenlee added.

Venezuela and Guyana are in dispute over the Essequibo, an area of about 160,000 square kilometers which covers two thirds of the Guyanese territory.
