Premier Oil has advised that the Ocean General semisub spudded the CRD-2X appraisal well on February 10. The well is being drilled in a water depth of 1,033 feet (315 meters) with a planned total measured depth of about 10,171 feet (3,100 meters) below rotary table. The well is designed to reduce uncertainty in whether the CRD structure contains sufficient volumes to support a potential development.
