AIM-listed Angus Energy has announced that the drilling programme at Saltfleetby is likely to be extended by approx. 14 days as a consequence of drilling issues in the Westphalian reservoir and following which the testing phase will commence.
The Company is preparing to mill a new window in the 7" casing, some 100 metres above the present cased depth of approx. 2400 metres, and to drill directly to target depth in 6" hole. Operations to mill the window are expected to commence tomorrow and drilling in open hole will resume before the end of the week.
An infographic of the programme change will be posted on the Company's website and social media pages over the next two days.
