Second Jackup Reaches Manati

Norse Energy said that a second jackup rig, the P-13, has arrived on the Manati gas field offshore Brazil. The rig has begun drilling the second production well.

The first jackup (PA29) is drilling at approximately 1,200 meters on the first production well. The expected total depth is 1,650 meters for both wells. Both jackups will share in the drilling and completion work of the seven Manati development wells.

Norse added that the Brazilian Petroleum Agency, ANP, has formally approved the assignment of the company's 10-percent interest in the BCAM-40 license from the seller Petroserv. Other participants include Petrobras (operator, 35 percent interest) and Queiroz Galvão Perfuracoes (55 percent)

The Manati gas field, located in the Camamu and Almada basins, is part of the BCAM-40 license.
