Independent Oil and Gas (IOG) has set a date to drill its Skipper appraisal well.
Transocean’s Sedc0 704 semi-submersible rig will drill the well on the Northern North Sea discovery on July 22.
Chief executive Mark Routh said: “We continue to make good progress towards the drilling of the Skipper appraisal well, which has received tremendous support from the North Sea community. We believe this well will be transformational for the company and look forward to its imminent spudding.”
