The drilling campaign involves the completion of four wells on the Stella field prior to start-up of production. Each well is anticipated to take approximately 80-90 days to drill, complete and clean-up test. The joint venture partners in the Ithaca operated Greater Stella Area are Ithaca Energy (UK) Ltd (54.66%), Dyas UK Ltd (25.34%) and Petrofac Energy Developments UK Limited (20%). Mike Travis, Greater Stella Area Project Manager, commented: "The award of the ADTI contract represents an important step in the Company's approach to reducing GSA project execution risk. ADTI has a long and established relationship with Ithaca, having successfully and safely completed turnkey operations on seven of the Company's operated wells over recent years. ADTI has a highly experienced drilling team in place to manage execution of the campaign and we look forward to the commencement of drilling operations in this quarter."
