Ocean General semi-submersible drilling rig has completed drilling operation at a well offshore Vietnam without discovering hydrocarbons.
The well, which evaluated a tilted fault trap similar to the Cá Rồng Đỏ (CRD) structure, encountered sandstones in the main objective sequence as prognosed, but no hydrocarbons were present.
Preparations will now be made to plug and abandoned the well as planned.
