and a dual electrical submersible pump system have been successfully installed
above the horizontal section of the well and the subsea xmas tree and flowbase
are ready for hook-up of flowlines by the subsea installation contractor. The
Sedco 704 drilling unit, will stay on location to undertake further completion
work for the project and is currently preparing to complete 14/18b-16 (to be

for installation using a heavy duty jackup drilling unit. The supply of the
trees and control systems will be managed and delivered from GE Oil & Gas's
Aberdeen facility.
