- Energean Oil and Gas said Monday it had commenced its 2019 drilling programme in Israel across four wells with the option to drill a further six under its contract with Stena Drilling.

Energean would batch drill the top-hole sections of the wells, which consisted of three development wells and Karish North, allowing ;significant operational efficiencies and cost savings,' the company said.

The drilling campaign was being undertaken using the Stena DrillMAX drillship.
