Block Energy PLC - oil and gas development and production company focused on Georgia - Signs memorandum of understanding with US oil field services giant Baker Hughes Co.

"The MoU envisages multiple service awards for advanced oil and gas technology across a production-led, multi-well drilling programme. The initial project will drill a horizontal well targeting a recoverable volume estimated to be 2.1 million of barrels of oil equivalent at the WR-BA well target location in West Rustavi," company explains.

It adds: "Block Energy's collaboration with Baker Hughes will support current and future development across its portfolio.

I am looking forward to drilling our first well utilising our newly acquired 3-D seismic and the state-of-the-art directional drilling services and well assurance provided by Baker Hughes. The added technical and operational expertise, never before used in Georgia, provides a step-change in our technical capability and will better enable the team to unlock the significant potential across our asset base.
