Eirik Raude Rig Arrives Ahead of Falklands Drill

Junior oil firm Rockhopper Exploration reported Tuesday that the Eirik Raude (UDW semisub) rig has arrived in the North Falkland Basin in the South Atlantic and will shortly move to location to drill a well on the Zebedee prospect.

This well is the first in a six-well drilling campaign that will see fours wells drilled in the North Falkland Basin and two to the south of the Falkland Islands.

The Zebedee reservoir is an eastern flank fed fan system originating from the same canyon as Casper South at the southernmost boundary of PL032. The Zebedee reservoir lies above the regional oil-water contact and the prospect is estimated to be relatively low risk at this level, according to Rockhopper.
