Rockhopper Spuds Ernest Well
Rockhopper spudded the Ernest 26/6-1 well in License PL024. The well is targeting an estimated depth of 7,874 feet (2,400 meters), and drilling should take about 30 days. The Ocean Guardian semisub is performing the drilling operations. Once completed, the rig will return to the Sea Lion 14/10-2 well to conduct flow testing on the oil discovery. Rockhopper wholly owns and operates the Ernest and Sea Lion wells.SubseaIQ provides focused, in-depth coverage of offshore field development activities around the world, with daily updates on hundreds of offshore fields and facilities.
