Faroe Petroleum drills Rodriguez

Oil and gas company Faroe Petroleum has started drilling at the Rodriguez exploration well in the Norwegian Sea, in which it has a 30 per cent interest. The well, which is on the Halten Terrace, is planned to be drilled about 4,040 metres and the drilling operations will last around 75 days. Chief executive Graham Stewart said Faroe was looking forward to an “exciting” 2013, with “four important exploration wells scheduled to be drilled in Norwegian waters”.
