The rig is in Limassol, Cyprus, undergoing preparations for the contract. It will drill one firm well, with an option for a second.

GSP’s jackup GSP Saturn drilled offshore Tunisia for the same client in 2011 and 2012.

NUMHYD is a joint venture between the Tunisian company of petroleum activities (ETAP) and the Algerian national oil company (SONATRACH), formed in 2003, to perform exploration and production of oil and gas in Tunisia and Algeria.
