Last week, BPC confirmed it has signed off the rig contract and the Stena ICE Max vessel will deliver the well.

Today, it addded that well control and associated insurance policies are now in place. It has expanded the dedicated drilling team and has entered into a master service agreement with Halliburton to support the programme.

“With the certainty around our forward schedule, we are now able to push on with a wide range of important planning and logistics tasks, such as completing our insurance placement and progressing a range of necessary contracts for services and supplies,” said Simon Potter, chief executive.

A conceptual development study has been updated along with an update to the potential full-field economics which reaffirms the economic robustness of the project.

In a successful development scenario, assuming US$40 per barrel oil, the project is expected to deliver more than US$2.5bn of net asset value.

The study envisages revenues of over US$5bn to the government of The Bahamas.
