AGR Petroleum Services is managing the drilling operations and logistics for the well, having contracted most of the third party suppliers used in the operation, including those supplying directional drilling, mudlogging and cementing.
The exploration well is being drilled in water depths of approximately 90 meters, and drilling is expected to take two to three months, dependent on results during the drilling operation.
Commenting on the well spud, Geir Finsrud, Vice President of AGR Petroleum Services said:
"AGR Petroleum Services are pleased to be involved in providing drilling management services for Pertra and providing the offshore and onshore teams. We have a strong working relationship with Pertra having assisted them on the redevelopment of the nearby Varg field".
Project Manager at AGR Petroleum Services, Magnus Florvaag added:
"The Maersk Giant operation adds to our drilling presence in Norway adding to the current program where we are managing drilling operations using the Bredford Dolphin on behalf of seven client companies over a three year multi-well program.
Today's well spud is an exciting indication of the future opportunities available to AGR Group, building on our successful execution of projects to date".
