Petroceltic International plc
Italian Operational Update
Petroceltic International plc ("Petroceltic" or "the Company"), the upstream oil & gas exploration company focused on North Africa, the Mediterranean and the Black Sea regions, is pleased to announce an update on its activities in Italy.
Carpignano Sesia-1 well update
The Company has been advised that Eni Spa ("Eni"), as operator of the Carisio permit (Eni 47.5% Operator, Petroceltic 47.5%, Condotte 5%) in the Western Po Valley, has lodged an application with the Ministry of Economic Development requesting a further suspension of the permit.
This suspension will enable Eni to incorporate all latest technologies in order to identify a new well location and drilling plan which enables all well objectives to be achieved, whilst also meeting local stakeholder concerns with respect to distance of the wellsite from the village of Carpignano Sesia
Petroceltic is fully supportive of Eni's ongoing efforts to ensure a successful outcome to the permitting process for the drilling of the Carpignano Sesia exploration well.
