African Petroleum Corp. Ltd., Perth, has secured the Ocean Rig UDW Eirik Raude deepwater fifth generation semisubmersible to start a two-well drilling program off West African in the third or fourth quarter of 2012.

The rig will continue African Petroleum’s drilling program on blocks 8 and 9 off Liberia. The company holds other blocks off West Africa, and the contract contains an option for a third well.

African Petroleum discovered oil in formations of Turnonian and Albian age at its Narina -1 discovery on Block 9 earlier this year (OGJ Online, Feb. 21, 2012).
