AGR was assigned by ENGIE E&P to drill a cost effective wildcat Cara well near the Gjøa field in the northern part of the Norwegian North sea – an area close to shore and with a high volume of marine traffic.
Situated just 35km from the mainland, the team needed to mitigate additional environmental risks through detailed planning and monitoring.
In addition, the rig was in a busy marine traffic zone and so needed critical safeguards in place to protect the safety of the drilling crew and the vessels entering the area.
- The Cara well was completed ahead of time and below budget
- Excellent HSE performance
- All objectives met, including successful well testing
