Drilling under way on Rodriguez

Faroe Petroleum said yesterday that drilling had started on the Rodriguez exploration well in the Norwegian Sea. The firm has a 30% stake in the prospect. Chief executive Graham Stewart said: “This will be the last well to spud in our 2012 programme and we now look forward to an exciting 2013 programme with four important exploration wells scheduled to be drilled in Norwegian waters.

“In the meantime, we await the results from the BP-operated North Uist well, west of Shetland.”
