San Leon Energy has successfully spud its well in Poland’s southern Permian Basin.
The firm, which focuses on exploration in Europe and North Africa, successfully drilled the Rawicz-15 well to a total depth of 1540m.
A company spokesperson said: “The reservoir to be tested is of a thickness consistent with the prognosis although the reservoir is interpreted as being of slightly better quality than that in Rawicz-12.”
The well was drilled using rig from Poland’s Exalo Drilling.
The well, which is operated and funded by Palomar Natural Resources, will now undergo a full well testing programme which is expected to commence in two weeks’ time.
