Oil major ExxonMobil has started drilling operations on a well located offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. 

According to information from the Canadian offshore regulator, C-NLOPB, the Seadrill-owned West Aquarius drilling rig started drilling operations at Harp L-42 well on October 11, 2019.

The well is located in license EL 1135, which is operated by ExxonMobil with a 40% interest. Partners are Suncor and Equinor with a 30% interest each.

It is worth reminding that ExxonMobil awarded a one-firm well contract to the West Aquarius rig back in 2018 and it was scheduled to start between May and July this year. The contract also included options for further extension.
