Eni takes Saipem drillship to Morocco

Eni has taken the ultra-deepwater drillship Saipem 12000 for an exploratory well in Morocco’s Rabat Deep offshore zone.

The vessel should be on site by March next year.

Eni won the licence in January to explore the 200 sq km area which contains a Jurassic carbonate primary reservoir containing potentially up to 768m barrels of resources.

This January Eni took charge of the license, offering Chariot a capped carry on drilling of JP-1 and other geological and administrative costs relating to the concession.
