Transocean's Cajun Express Semisub Moves to Drill SNE-1 Well Off Senegal

FAR Limited, an independent oil and gas explorer focused on East and West Africa, reported Wednesday that Transocean's Cajun Express (UDW semisubmersible) has been moved from the FAN-1 well location to the SNE-1 well location offshore Senegal whilst ongoing maintenance is being completed.

The FAN-1 well has been drilled to 3,937 feet (1,200 meters) below the seabed where 20 inch casing was cemented completing the "top hole" portion of the well. The semisub has then mobilized to the SNE-1 location to most efficiently utilize the rig by drilling the "top hole" portion of this second well. After 20 inch casing is cemented on the SNE-1 well, the rig will return to the FAN-1 well location in five to seven days, and drill to the total planned depth.
