Offshore staff

LONDON – The drillship Maersk Deliverer has started work on Kora-1, the first well in the deepwater AGC Profond PSC off northwest Africa.

The PSC covers the maritime zone between Senegal and Guinea Bissau, jointly administered by the two countries’ governments. Ophir Energy is the operator.

Kora is 280 km (174 mi) south-southwest of Dakar in 2,700 m (8,858 ft) of water.

Ophir Managing Director Nick Cooper said: “The well will provide valuable information on a previously underexplored part of the NW African margin and has the potential to open up a major new play system.”
