“We intend to continue our back-to-back drilling campaign over the remaining term of the contract by appraising the Jonker discovery and drilling at least one more exploration well.”
The Deepsea Bollsta rig carried out the Jonker work. Shell said the semi-submersible would remain on PEL 39 to drill further exploration and appraisal wells.
Shell spudded the Jonker well in December. “I’m not saying anything apart from to say it is going well, it is going very well,” Shino said to applause.
