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.
