Offshore oil operations, Ireland
Drilling is now underway

Providence Resources PLC (LON:PVR) has confirmed that drilling operations have now begun for the Druid/Drombeg exploration well which is targeting some 5bn barrels offshore Ireland.

It is expected to be a high impact exploration programme, if the well successfully confirms the prospects seen in pre-drill analysis.

The Stena IceMAX deep-water drillship is contracted for the programme, and operations have now begun after the Minister of Communications, Climate Action and Environment gave consent on July 11.

Providence told investors that a further update will be provided once the Druid prospect has been penetrated, or as appropriate, drilling is then planned to continue down to the underlying Drombeg prospect.
