OPRED has advised the Oil and Gas Authority of its in-principle agreement to the issue of the relevant consent for both projects.
There are several regulatory approvals and notifications still required before the consenting process is completed for the wells. When all the necessary approvals have been obtained, the wells will be drilled as a back-to-back programme using the ENSCO-72 Jack-Up rig, and subject to the approvals being in place Corallian will commence the programme with the drilling of the Wick well during December 2018. Following completion of the Wick well, the rig will be mobilised from the Moray Firth to the English Channel to drill the Colter well.
Fraser Well Management Limited will be the Well Operator for the drilling of the wells. Orbis Energy Limited are the environmental consultant to the projects. No further announcements are planned by Corallian until all the approvals are in place and the drilling has commenced.
