AGR to undertake multi-well drilling campaign

AGR Petroleum Services, a provider of field-management services to the oil and gas industry, is to undertake a multi-well, multi-client drilling campaign on behalf of seven international operators.

The company is expected to drill more than 15 exploration wells in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea during the three-year programme, as well as providing essential support to the campaign on behalf of Wintershall, Discover Petroleum, Nexen, Rocksource, Bridge Energy, E.ON Ruhrgas and OMV.

Planning stages of the drilling campaign will start immediately, with the first exploration wells anticipated to be drilled towards the spring of 2011.
