Atlantic Petroleum has commenced drilling of the Pegasus West well 43/13b-7 on P1724 in the UKCS.

The well is being drilled with the Noble Julie Robertson jackup rig in a water depth of about 95 feet. Pegasus West is being drilled approximately 7 km WSW of the 43/13b-6Z Pegasus North discovery well.

This well was drilled in 2010 by Centrica Energy and Volantis Exploration, now a subsidiary of Atlantic Petroleum, and was plugged and abandoned in January 2011 having encountered gas in the Carboniferous. The Pegasus West prospect lies in the Southern North Sea, close to the producing Cavendish Field, and has a Carboniferous gas target. The rig is expected to be on location for over two months.
