Woodside to spud offshore Mauritania well next week

THE Stena Tay drill rig is expected to resume exploration drilling for Woodside-operated joint ventures in Mauritania next week, the company said today.

The next well to be drilled will be the Zoulé-1 exploration well in PSC Area C, Block 6, which will target a Cretaceous objective and has a planned total depth of about 3730 metres.

Following Zoulé-1, the Doré-1 exploration well will be drilled in PSC Area B to target late Paleogene and early Miocene objectives.
