KUALA LUMPUR, MalaysiaHibiscus Petroleum’s jointly controlled operating company Anasuria Operating Co. (AOC) has signed a rig-share agreement with Ping Petroleum UK.

This will involve AOC taking the semisubmersibleStena Spey for a minimum 45-day period to drill the Guillemot A GUA-P1 side track well in the UK central North Sea.

Petrofac, as AOC’s appointed well operator, will be responsible for the side track. The plan is to re-enter the original wellbore and potentially drain additional oil volumes.

AOC hopes to prove 1.7 MMbbl for development through the Anasuria FPSO. This would be one of a series of enhancement projects designed to increase the company’s net production from the Anasuria cluster of fields (Teal, Teal South, and Guillemot) to 5,000 b/d by 2020.
