GSP to drill three wells in Prinos area offshore Greece
Energean Oil & Gas has awarded GSP an EPCI and drilling contract for the production expansion program at the Prinos concession offshore western Greece.
The newly launched Epsilon field development will comprise an unmanned wellhead platform (Lamda) and three inter-connecting pipelines to the existing Prinos Delta platform.
GSP’s work scope includes drilling of three wells at the Lamda platform location in the Aegean Sea, with the jackupGSP Jupiter, and project management, construction, transportation and installation engineering, procurement, construction, installation, pre-commissioning and start-up of the Lamda platform and associated pipelines.
Energean recently signed with BP an extension to the latter’s long-term off-take agreement for the Prinos field to November 2025.
In an unrelated development, the jackupGSP Saturn arrived at the Port of Constanţa last month following a tow from Rotterdam and through the Bosphorus into the Black Sea.
It will undergo a reclassification process ahead of a drilling campaign in the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea offshore Turkey.
TheGSP Saturn is a four-legged, self-elevating jackup, which last underwent an upgrade/reclassification program at the GSP Shipyard in 2013.
