Lundin announced that drilling of the exploration well Mindou Marine-1, located offshore in Block Marine XI Congo-Brazzaville, has commenced.

The planned depth is approximately 3400 meters below mean sea level and the well will be drilled by using the semi-submersible drilling rig ENSCO 5003. The drilling operation is expected to take 50 days.

The well is targeting a pre-salt Toca formation carbonate reservoir within a combination structural and stratigraphic trap. This well will fulfill the Phase II drilling commitment on the license and is the first of a two to three well program on blocks Marine XI and XIV.

Lundin Petroleum has an 18.75 percent working interest in the license which is operated by SOCO International.
