Otto Energy Limited has announced that drilling of the ST 224 #1 well has commenced within the South Timbalier 224 (‘ST 224’) lease in the Gulf Of Mexico shelf, the company said in its press release.
Drilling is targeting a large, amplitude supported, high CGR (condensate gas ratio) gas condensate exploration prospect located in the prolific Bul. 1 trend. Otto holds a 25% working interest in ST 224 which is operated by W&T Offshore.
