Maersk Developer to Drill for Shell in 2023, Karoon to Drill Patola Soon

AvatarPosted by

The semi-sub is currently chartered to Karoon, and after three well interventions in the Baúna field, is expected to drill two development wells over Patola in the same concession. Satellite data shows the rig has just arrived on the area where Patola B is licensed, so the drilling should begin in the next few days. According to an investor release, the Baúna oil production is at approximately 22,000 bopd.

In other news, the same rig was chartered to Shell for 2023, when it is expected to spud another exploration well in Santos as well as carry out well interventions at Parque das Conchas. Apart from the block C-M-791, which was drilled earlier this year in January, Shell has drilling licensing processes over another two blocks, C-M-659 and C-M-713, operated in partnership with Chevron and Qatar Energy.
