Atwood drillship progressing Leviathan development wells
The drillship Atwood Advantage has moved from the Tamar field offshore Israel and has started development drilling on the Leviathan field.
According to Delek Group, the rig spudded the Leviathan-7 development and production well in April, and the well reached the planned depth of 2,900 m (9,514 ft) below sea level.
TheAtwood Advantage then transferred to drill Leviathan-5, which will have a probable final depth of 5,200 m (17,060 ft) below sea level. It will then return to the Leviathan-7 well to drill further to a depth of 5,100 m (16,732 ft).
Earlier this month, Delek secured all pre-conditions and approvals to merge two of its subsidiary companies involved in both field developments, and the newly merged entity has begun trading as Delek Drilling.
