Independent well management firm Zenith Energy has achieved a drilling first for the firm by completing of a UK land well after being appointed operator late last year.
Zenith, which is based in Aberdeen’s city centre, completed the onshore project as the assigned well operator for UK oil company, Terrain Energy.
This marks a first for Zenith following recent amendments that were made to industry regulations, requiring companies to be assessed as competent well operators.
Drilling of the Whisby 6 well, which is based in Lincolnshire, commenced in March and was completed last month with hydrocarbons confirmed.
Zenith operations director Chris Collie, said: ” This was another opportunity to showcase our capabilities and experience of the personnel in our organisation. We have delivered a safe, efficient well, achieving the objectives of Terrain Energy, which aligns with our core values of delivering the correct technical and commercial solution to our clients.”
Since its formation in 2012, Zenith has delivered more than 70 projects across three continents.
