Operations have commenced on FRISIA BAS-3

Pietersbierum, 5th of June 2014

Operations have commenced on the well BAS-3 . BAS-3 is a well of Frisia Zout BV, part of ESCO.

Firstly the current cavern will be abandoned, requiring the placement of a seal in the bottom part of the well (the final abandonment cement plug). When the cavern has been abandoned a side-track BAS-3 Original will be made with an additional step out of 450m at which a new cavern will be developed.
