An investigation into the causes of the incident and future implications for Habanero 3 is in progress. A program of work has been developed to carry out the investigation and will require the removal of the well head and damaged sections of the well casing for metallurgical and structural integrity analyses. The investigation will take at least six weeks.
Pending the outcomes of the investigation, drilling activities are in abeyance.
