This is the first of a total of five leads within the license area to have been upgraded to drillable status. The future of the other leads will be determined by the result of the coming exploration well on the first structure. Based on the seismic interpretation three potential drilling sites have been identified on the prospect and work will now be directed to surface surveys to select an optimal drilling location. A drilling program will be designed and tenders for suitable rigs will be carried out over the next couple of months with a view to drill an exploration well later this year. Estimated drilling depths are from 1,500 to 1,550 meters.
