The well will be drilled by the West Hercules mobile drilling facility, which is owned and operated by Seadrill. West Hercules is a sixth-generation, semi-submersible drilling facility built in 2008 at the Daewoo Shipyard in South Korea.

The facility was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in 2012.
