MEO Australia Continues with Abandonment Ops on Artemis-1 Well
MEO Australia Limited advises that since the last progress report, final logs were acquired and abandonment operations commenced.
The proximity of a Tropical Low, with the potential to develop into a cyclone, necessitated the de-manning of all personnel from the Songa Venus rig starting on Tuesday 14th December. Re-manning of the rig commenced on Friday 17th December and abandonment operations were re-started on Sunday 19th December.
Abandonment operations are continuing and the rig is expected to be released over the coming weekend.
