  17. 17. News Article (continued) <ul><li>The principal objective of Sapele-1 is to appraise the Deep Omicron oil discovery encountered in the Sapele-1 exploration well.

Drilling is expected to take approximately 40 to 50 days (excluding testing). </li></ul><ul><li>The Vantage Sapphire jack-up rig has now been contracted and consequently the Sapele-2 well is expected to spud mid-March 2011 as a material step-out down dip from the Sapele-1 location. </li></ul><ul><li>Further update announcements on drilling activities will be made as appropriate, it added. </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.cameroononline.org/2011/02/28/bowleven-begins-drilling-offshore-cameroon/ </li></ul>
