FOGL: Isobel Deep BOP Fixed

Falkland Oil and Gas Limited (FOGL) informed that the technical issues relating to the blow-out preventer (BOP) control system on the 14/20-1 “Isobel Deep” well have now been fully resolved and drilling operations have recommenced.

The well was spudded by Premier Oil, as operator, on 8th April 2015.

Whilst these repairs were being undertaken the Eirik Raude rig was utilised to drill top-hole sections and set conductors on the Chatham and Jayne East Locations. On Jayne East, (FOGL 40% interest) the 36″ conductor was set at a depth of 541 meters and the well temporarily suspended. Drilling on Jayne East will recommence when the rig returns after the Humpback well in the South Falklands Basin.

The Isobel Deep well is expected to take approximately 15 days to complete.
