Sound Energy notes mobilisation of TE-8 Rig

Sound Energy confirms that ground works at the Tendrara TE-8 well site, onshore Morocco, are now complete and that the National 110 UE (1500 HP) traditional rig, has been mobilised and will shortly be arriving on site.

The rig-up operations were expected to be completed by mid-February 2017, enabling the drilling of TE-8 to commence during February.

The National 110 UE rig is owned by Saipem SpA and was used by the company in the drilling of Sound Energy's TE-7 well.
