CNOOC is the with a 51.00% stake, Horizon Oil owns 26.95%, Roc Oil 19.60%, and Majuko Corp 2.45%.
Both wells are being drilled from the existing WZ6-12 platform with one well side-tracked from an existing wellbore, and the other drilled from a recently completed rig slot extension.
The two wells will tie into existing facilities and are expected to deliver a combined total rate of ~1,900 bopd gross to the existing WZ6-12 production facility.
