Hibiscus Petroleum spuds Sea Lion well

Hibiscus Petroleum has spudded the Sea Lion well after the project was delayed. The company’s subsidiary, Carnarvon Hibiscus, said the West Telestro drilling rig arrived at the site last week following a 196-mile tow from its original location. The planned total depth of the well is 1,800metres with the exploration well expected to take up to 30 days.

Sea Lion-1 exploration well faces further delays

The Sea Lion-1 exploration well is facing further delays due to continued weather conditions preventing the handover of the West Telesto rig from its current operator. Hibiscus Petroleum is currently awaiting handover of the jack-up from Origin Energy in the Gippland basin. 3D Oil said the hold-up was not at the material expense of the joint venture and was also not due to the performance of the rig or other operational factors.
