Excellent HSE performance delivers Cara well

The prospect proved to be the 3rd largest discovery recently made on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
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
