An American oil giant, ExxonMobil has discovered more oil offshore Guyana as it continues its exploration.

ExxonMobil has not given a resource estimate for the amount of gas in the find but says the reservoir has a very healthy gas-to-oil ratio that should aid in oil production.

Exxon says finding oil is a world-class discovery with a recoverable resource of between US$800 million and 1.4 billion oil-equivalent barrels.
