“The timely completion of seismic acquisition at Tapi Aike prior to the end of H1 2019 is a key operational milestone for the company and one which ensures that the pathway to drilling Tapi Aike remains on track - with spud currently anticipated to take place in Q4 2019,” Echo said in a statement.

Echo added that it is working closely with its Argentinian partner with a view to drilling ‘early in the window’ now that seismic acquisition is complete.

In a note to clients, analysts at SPAngel said: " Positive news from Echo and its partners as they continue to target an Argentinean drilling campaign later in the year."
