LONDON -- Drilling operations are about to begin in block 42/13 in the UK southern North Sea with the jackup ENSCO 70, according to Stratic Energy. The rig is expected to drill two wells on the Breagh discovery.
The rig will initially drill a vertical well on the East Breagh area (42/13-4). The well is designed to confirm reservoir extent and potential significant upside to the gas discovered and appraised on the West Breagh area in 2007. Following the East Breagh well, a high angle/horizontal well is planned for West Breagh (42/13-5) to further evaluate this part of the field, the company says.
