Rockhopper's Falkland Well Comes Up Dry
The 26/6-1 exploration well on the Ernest prospect has reached a depth of 7,349 feet (2,240 meters), and logging operations have commenced. Initial logs have confirmed that hydrocarbons are not present at the well, and it is dry. The well was testing a different play type from that encountered at Sea Lion, which is situated about 75 miles (120 kilometers) from the Ernest prospect. Rockhopper will gather data to perform a detailed study of all samples in a specialized laboratory in the United Kingdom. Rockhopper wholly owns and operates the 26/6-1 well.SubseaIQ provides focused, in-depth coverage of offshore field development activities around the world, with daily updates on hundreds of offshore fields and facilities.
