FAR Limited and its Senegal joint venture partners have executed contracts for the use of the Ocean Rig Athena drillship for a drilling program in FAR's highly prospective offshore Senegal Blocks starting in the coming weeks. The Ocean Rig Athena is under long term contract with ConocoPhillips and the ConocoPhillips drilling organisation will play a key role in project managing the drilling program.

The drillship is currently in Angola and FAR expects it will commence mobilisation to Senegal in the next few days.

The firm drilling program includes three wells including two appraisal wells on the world class SNE-1 oil discovery that will include a coring and testing program, plus one shelf exploration well to further evaluate the shelf area prospectivity. This drilling, logging, coring and testing program is expected to be completed by mid-2016.
