Ophir, which operates offshore Accra, says June 19, 2013 that the Starfish-1 well is its first well in Ghana and will be drilled by the Stena DrillMax drillship.
The Starfish-1 well is located in water depths of 1,500m and has a target depth of 3,850m.
“The well kicks off an acceleration of Ophir’s drilling operations into a broader gas and oil exploration programme,” Nick Cooper, Ophir’s CEO said in a statement.
The well is expected to require approximately 40-days to complete, said Ophir who has 20% equity position in Offshore Accra.
