FOGL: BOP Issues Resolved. Scotia Drilling Resumes

FOGL, an oil and gas firm focused on exploration offshore Falkland Islands today, November 7, announced that drilling operations at the Scotia well have resumed.

The operations had been suspended due to Blowout Preventer issues. FOGL has informed that the necessary repairs were carried out on the blow-out preventer within the expected time frame. The Leiv Eiriksson semi-submersible rig, owned by Ocean Rig, was on a zero day rate during the repairs which took two weeks to be completed.

Tim Bushell, Chief Executive of FOGL commented: “Whilst this work has resulted in a two week delay to our drilling operations, safety is our number one priority and it was essential to resolve this issue before recommencing drilling operations.”

Scotia well, located 315 km east – northeast of Stanley, Falkland Islands, is designed to test the Scotia prospect within the mid Cretaceous fan play.

FOGL is the operator of the well, holding a 40% interest, together with its partner Edison International Spa (25%) and Noble Energy with 35% interest.
