Namibia: Repsol spuds Welwitschia well

Issue 276 - 02 May 2014 | 1 minute read

Operator Repsol spudded the delayed Welwitschia-1 well in the Walvis Basin on 23 April, using the Rowan Renaissance newbuild drillship. The drillship arrived in Walvis Bay on 4 March, at the start of a three-year contract to Repsol. The well is expected to be drilled to a total depth of 3,000 metres to target Maastrichtian and Aptian-Albian reservoir sequences, and is being keenly watched after a series of disappointing wells last year.
