HOUSTONWoodside Energy (Senegal) BV has awarded Halliburton Co. nine conditional contracts for drilling and completion services for the SNE field development Phase 1 offshore Senegal.

The contracts awarded include drilling, logging, cementing, lower completions, e-line/slick line, coiled tubing and well testing services.

Initial engineering work will begin in Perth, Australia, later this year, and then will transfer to Dakar, Senegal, in 2020.
