Ororo-2 Spud Date Still Flexible

Thursday, January 3, 2019

Sirius Petroleum should be able to launch its planned drilling program in Nigeria in the near future. The company was recently advised by Shelf Drilling that the Adriatic-1 jack-up rig is currently completing the last of its pre-existing contracts with another operator.

The rig is at this time stationed on a block adjacent to Sirius’ Ororo field on OML 95. The timing for the spudding of the Ororo-2 well is dependent on the final completion of the previous contract. Sirius said it will not have a definitive time for the spud until Shelf Drilling notifies it of the mobilization of the rig to the Ororo-2 location.
