Rockhopper Preps Sea Lion for Flow Testing
Rockhopper Exploration announced the Ernest 26/6-1 exploration well was plugged and abandoned as a dry hole following the completion of all logging runs. The Ocean Guardian semisub will now proceed to the Sea Lion location to carry out a flow test on well 14/10-2. The flow test is expected to give an early indication of the production potential of the reservoir sands, and is a part of the planning process to provide development options. The Sea Lion discovery is located on Block 14/10 in Production Licenses 032 and 033 on the eastern basin margin of the Falkland Islands. Rockhopper wholly owns and operates the field.SubseaIQ provides focused, in-depth coverage of offshore field development activities around the world, with daily updates on hundreds of offshore fields and facilities.
