The well is at 1,310 ft, and Melrose will soon set 20-in. casing. The well is to reach planned total depth of 8,500 ft in mid to late July.

It is designed to test a four-way dip closed structure with oil potential in Cretaceous and Ordovician formations. The prospect has combined midrange gross unrisked prospective resources of 55 million bbl with a 19% chance of success.

Melrose is operator with 66.7% interest in the licenses.
