Announcing a trading and operations update, Genel Energy said that drilling on the Vitol-operated CI-508 licence (Genel 24% working interest) offshore Côte d'Ivoire is set to commence towards the end of 2015 on the Aigle Prospect.

The well, which is targeting significant oil prospectivity in stacked Cretaceous reservoirs, will take approx. 50 days to complete at an estimated future cost of $10 million net to Genel, which will largely be payable in 2016.

Vitol, on behalf of its partners, Genel and Petroci, last year engaged FirstEnergy Capital as exlusive adviser for the farm-out of an interest in licence CI-508.
