16 wells have been drilled by the Maersk Explorer rig in total for Shah Deniz 2 production and subsequent ramp up. Drilling operations will continue to deliver all wells required to ramp up to plateau level, BP Azerbaijan has told AZERTAC.

During the first quarter of 2019, Shah Deniz Alpha platform rig was on warm stack.

The Istiglal rig delivered one subsea well completion on the East South Flank and is currently performing completion operations on the West South Flank. The Maersk Explorer rig drilled one well to its final depth and moved to rig certification.

The above two rigs have already drilled and completed four wells on the North Flank, four wells on the West Flank and four wells on the East South Flank.
