The results are expected to be divulged in June as the well is expected to take up to three months to reach target depth.
Fastnet managing director Paul Griffiths said: “We are delighted that drilling has commenced on schedule on the Eagle Prospect. The results from the FA-1 well will allow us to further evaluate and potentially de-risk the varied and near-term drilling targets in the Foum Assaka Licence where we and our partners see significant potential upside.”
