The company today told investors that construction work at the well site has been completed, and the drilling rig is currently being mobilised to the well’s location.
“We are pleased with the progress we have made around the preparations for the upcoming drilling campaign on South Disouq,” said Paul Welch, SDX chief executive.
“We look forward to keeping the market appraised of drilling developments over the coming weeks.”
