Water depth at the location is 292 meters. Drilling is scheduled to begin in late August 2019 and is expected to last at least 26 days.

The well will be drilled by the West Hercules drilling rig, which is owned and operated by Seadrill.

The facility was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in 2012.
