Projects and contracts

Island Innovator is currently in South Africa drilling the exciting prospect Gazania-1 in the Orange Basin for Eco Atlantic.

After South Africa we will move on to Mauretania for plugging and abandonment of four firm and one optional well in the Tullow Oil operated Banda and Tiof fields, before heading for the UK.

In UK we have our recently signed contract with Dana Petroleum (E&P) Limited for drilling of three firm wells and one optional well. The firm work is estimated to 80 days and the optional work is estimated to be 30 days.

After completion of the Dana program, we will sail to Equatorial Guinea to start the drilling program with Trident Energy. The work is planned to start in September/October of 2023
