Reuters on Tuesday reported, citing a Shell Bulgaria manager who said that the well at the Block 1-14 “Khan Kubrat” license area would be spud on April 1.

To remind, Shell told Offshore Energy Today back in January that the exploration program would to take approximately 3 to 4 months to complete.

Shell will use the Noble Globetrotter II drillship for the operation. The same rig was used by Total in Bulgaria in 2016 when Total announced a play opening oil discovery in the Khan Asparuh license.
