Fossil Energy – Drilling
Shell is expected to commence drilling at the Pensacola prospect on Licence P2252 in the UK North Sea in mid-November 2022.
The Pensacola well is to be drilled with Noble 350-ft jackup Maersk Resilient, which is expected to mobilize to the location in early November 2022.
Maersk Resilient was contracted in June 2022, prior to the merger between Noble Corp. and Maersk Drilling.
Pensacola is a Zechstein Reef prospect located northwest of the Breagh gas field in the Southern North Sea. Shell’s partner Deltic Energy estimates the prospect to contain gross P50 Prospective Resources of 309 BCF.
