Romanian provider of offshore integrated services for oil and gas industry, Grup Servicii Petroliere (GSP), has been awarded an offshore drilling contract in Tunisia.
The contract was awarded by Numhyd, a jointly owned and managed oil company, founded by the Tunisian Company of Petroleum Activities (ETAP) and The Algerian National Oil Company (SONATRACH), who each own 50%.
GSP said that drilling operations will be carried out with the GSP Jupiter, a cantilever type mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU).
The company noted that the rig is currently under preparation for the contract in Limassol, Cyprus. GSP Jupiter is expected to be promptly moved onto location and drill one firm well and one optional well, the company added.
This is the second offshore drilling campaign GSP provides for Numhyd offshore Tunisia, after the exploration drilling operations GSP Saturn performed in 2011 and 2012.
