Ophir Energy today (23 Jan 2012) announced it has contracted the Eirik Raude Ocean rig to begin a three well drilling campaign in Equatorial Guinea.
Ophir plans a 60 day programme beginning in April 2012 of three firm wells, plus one contingent well in its operated Block R. The wells are designed to delineate sufficient additional gas reserves and facilitate a fast-track gas development. To date, Ophir has drilled two gas discoveries in Block R.
