BUCHAREST Oct 27 Romania's top oil and gas
group Petrom and U.S. major ExxonMobil have
begun drilling a third deepwater well in the Black Sea in the
European Union state, Petrom said on Monday.
The Pelican South-1 well is located 155 kilometres offshore
in the Romanian sector of the Black Sea, in the Neptun Block
which Petrom and Exxon jointly hold.
"The Pelican South-1 well will test a new geological
structure on the Neptun Block," Petrom said in a statement.
Petrom and ExxonMobil jointly own the Domino-1 well, the
first deep water exploration well in Romanian waters. In 2012,
the firms said they discovered 1.5-3 trillion cubic feet (42-84
billion cubic metres (bcm)) of gas reserves at Domino-1.
