Senegal: New drilling programme
Drilling has started on an appraisal programme for Cairn Energy’s SNE-1 well offshore Senegal. The SNE-2, SNE-3 and BEL-1 wells will be drilled back to back in a programme that is expected to be completed in mid-2016. The SNE-2 and SNE-3 appraisal wells will be logged, cored and flow tested. Australia’s FAR said the Ocean Rig Athena would first drill the top hole of SNE-3, then move to the SNE-2 location, where the well will then be drilled to total depth. On completion of the operations on SNE-2, SNE-3 will be re-entered and drilling and evaluation will be carried out before the start of the BEL-1 exploration well.
