Total intends to complete the gathering of data, plug and abandon the well, and evaluate the drilling results to establish commerciality of the reservoir. The well was drilled to a total depth of 15,600 feet (or 4,754 metres) in water depths of 262 feet (or 80 metres). The gross cost of drilling the appraisal well is approximately £66.6 million.
