Ocean Guardian Resumes Drilling for Oilexco

Oilexco reports that the Ocean Guardian semisub has resumed appraisal drilling on the Shelley oil accumulation on Blocks 22/2b and 22/3a. The vessel suspended drilling last week when an electrical fire occurred in the engine room. There were no injuries or environmental damage reported as a result of the fire, and the well being drilled by the Ocean Guardian remained under control throughout the entire time. Members from Diamond Offshore Drilling UK Limited, Oilexco North Sea Limited and personnel from the UK Health and Safety Executive traveled on board the vessel to investigate the cause, inspect the damage and review the safety procedures following the incident.
