Wintershall Spuds Shuwaihat Offshore Well
Wintershall Holding GmbH has spudded the first Shuwaihat sour gas and condensate field offshore well, located near Abu Dhabi.
In July 2015, Wintershall successfully completed the first onshore drilling of the sour gas and condensate field together with its partner ADNOC and the Austrian OMV. After compiling and analyzing the data from the onshore field well SH-5, Wintershall commenced the drilling of the offshore SH-6 well.
Following the completion of SH-6, a third planned well, SH-7, will also be drilled offshore, Wintershall said in a company statement.
