AGR Scores Well Management Gig Offshore Tunisia

AGR has been awarded a well management contract from international upstream exploration and production company, Cooper Energy Tunisa Bargou (CTEB).

This will see AGR perform the planning, execution and post-drilling activities for a one well program in the Gulf of Hammamet, offshore of Tunisia.

Sverre Skogen, AGR’s CEO, commented: "This is a significant win for AGR. Planning work has now commenced out of our Dubai office and once this is complete an operations team will move to the on-site project base prior to the well spudding later this year.

"We look forward to supporting CETB in achieving their desired results in a location where we have been successful in the past. This activity complements another contract win offshore of Tunisia which will see us perform a drilling feasibility study for five wells on behalf of an energy investment company, placing us as a strong, reputable player in this region."

AGR is currently seeking a suitable jackup rig to operate the well while investigating the possibility of incorporating it into a larger drilling campaign in the Mediterranean Sea.
