Leni Gas & Oil plc announced a short delay to the start of drilling operations at the Eugene Island Field ("EI-184") in the US Gulf of Mexico.
The current operator of the jackup Ocean Columbia (250' ILC) at Eugene Island-51 has had difficulty in withdrawing the legs from the seafloor. Silt jetting and dredging operations are ongoing to free the legs so that they can be raised in order to allow the rig to be towed to the new location. Once the legs have been successfully retrieved the rig will be released by the current operator and moved approximately 180,446 feet (55 kilometers) to the EI-184 platform to commence operations on the planned A2ST01 sidetrack.
This delay has no cost implications to LGO and its partners in EI-184. A further update will be provided once the rig has been mobilized to EI-184.
