Wintershall Swaps Drilling Order for Amol, Asha East Prospects

Anglo-Norwegian junior explorer Bridge Energy reported Thursday that its partner in production license 457 Wintershall has changed the order in which it will drill the Amol and Asha East prospects.

Bridge said that results were now expected from the Amol well first.

Both wells – which are located on the Utsira High and Gudrun terrace – are being drilled by the Borgland Dolphin (mid-water semisub) rig.

Bridge has a 20-percent interest in the PL457 license, while Wintershall is the operator with a 40-percent stake.
