Offshore staff

SYDNEY, Australia – Roc Oil (Bohai) Co. has started drilling a second exploration/appraisal well in the Zhanghai block in Bohai Bay offshore China.

The ZD CP2N-H-2 well is one of two adjoining blocks added to ROC’s existing Zhao Dong block contract earlier this year. It is being drilled from the Zhao Dong C4 platform.

Total planned depth is 3,283 m (10,771 ft). If a commercial discovery results, the well will be tied-in to existing Zhao Dong facilities.

H-2 is the final obligation well for the block. ROC is pursuing further development opportunities in the Zhao Dong area.
