Libya’s National Drilling Company, a subsidiary company of NOC, the state hydrocarbon company, has signed a contract with US-based SLB (formerly Schlumberger) to support an upcoming drilling campaign.
The agreement is a turnkey contract.
NOC says it is a first of its kind in the country.
SLB will provide support to the National Drilling Company in drilling three wells for the Remas Libya Company in the Nesr and Al Waha fields.
The three wells are to be sited in two concessions (NC 115 and NC 186), in the Murzuq Basin.
Spain’s Repsol Exploration Murzuq S.A. (REMSA) is the operating partner to NOC on the project.
NOC explains that the purpose of the three wells is to increase oil production and enhance collaboration between national and international companies.
