The rig will then move 5 km south to the Shkorpilovtci South West R2 location to test a turbidite channel complex, also of Eocene age. Planned TD is 800 m. Expected resource there is 20-30 bcf.

JKX Bulgaria Ltd. operates the license with 40% interest. Balkan Explorers (Bulgaria) Ltd. has 30% interest, and Sorgenia E&P Bulgaria has 30%.
