Lukoil has started drilling its first exploration well at Block 12 located in the southern area of the Gulf of Mexico

The Yoti West-1 Exp well is being drilled by the Valaris 8505 semisubmersible rig, which was transported to Block 12 after its successful work at Block 10 (the Sayulita-1EXP well). The exploration will focus on turbidite deposits of Upper and Lower Miocene. Water depth at the drilling site is 207 m.

Drilling of the Yoti West-1Exp will provide geological and geophysical data needed to make a decision on further exploration of Block 12.
