Russia’s northernmost well, the Universiy-1, will be drilled in open water during the ice-free drilling period from August to late October. The West Alfa semi-submersible rig has been specially upgraded for the Kara Sea’s harsh climate.
The West Alfa is equipped with an innovative ice control and ice defense system.
The well will be drilled by a joint venture between Rosneft, the license holder, and US ExxonMobil.
