Petsec Says Drilling at Vermilion 258 to Begin in October

Petsec reports that drilling of the Vermilion 258 G-3 and G-7 wells is now expected to commence in October as a result of delays in availability of the drilling rig, following the recent hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico.

The company's West Cameron 343/352 and Vermilion 258 platforms were undamaged in the recent hurricane activity. Approximately two days production was lost due to shut-ins at various times.
