Nexen Comes Up Dry at Stingray

Premier announced that the Stingray Exploration well (15/13b-11) drilled on License P1212 (Block 15/13b) has reached a total depth of 6,985 feet (2,129 meters) and is being plugged and abandoned as a dry hole (Premier 50 percent).

The next exploration well to be drilled by Premier in the UK North Sea is the Carnaby well on the Catcher acreage (UK Block 28/9) which Premier expects to spud towards the end of next week. The rig Sedco 711 (mid-water semisub) will then drill the Premier-operated Coaster prospect on the adjacent block to Carnaby (UK Block 28/10a).
