Raya-1 to test new deep water horizons

TOTAL is believed to be just days away from spudding the recording-breaking Raya-1 well, which will set the record for the deepest water drilling anywhere in the world.

Raya-1, which is being drilled with Statoil and ExxonMobil, is the first well to be drilled offshore Uruguay in 40 years and was expected to have spudded before the end of March.
