Noble Julie Robertson Turning to the Right at Pegasus West
The Atlantic Petroleum-contracted jackup rig Noble Julie Robertson has commenced drilling today at Pegasus West, a well located in approximately 95 feet of water in the southern North Sea.
The target for the 2-month drilling campaign, according to a statement by Atlantic Petroleum, is natural gas which was discovered in the Carboniferous layer during a joint drilling campaign with Centrica Energy in 2010.
The well is operated by Centrica Energy who hold a 55% interest in the license. Atlantic Petroleum holds 10% equity and the remaining equity 35% is held by Third Energy Offshore.
Ben Arabo, CEO of Atlantic Petroleum, commented: “We are very pleased to announce the spud of the Pegasus West well. The well is designed to delineate the extent of the Pegasus Field, and if successful help to de-risk any future Pegasus development. This is Atlantic Petroleum’s third of four exploration wells in our planned 2014 drilling programme.”
