Energean hosts US delegation at Prinos oil field in Greece

Energean said that on 9 September, it hosted the US undersecretary of energy Mark Menezes at its offshore facilities in Kavala, Eastern Macedonia, Greece.

The FTSE 250 company said the US delegation was given a tour of the Prinos Oil Field platforms, as well as the Energean-owned Energean Force drilling rig - currently drilling an extended reach well into the Epsilon Oil Field - and the GSP Jupiter jack up rig, which was currently drilling the first of three vertical development wells in the Epsilon Oil Field.

After concluding his visit to Prinos, Mark Menezes said that achieving energy security was made possible for respective countries by “doing everything we can” to embrace energy diversity.

He said that the US federal administration supported “more robust” energy, economic, and security ties with Greece, with southeast Europe, and with the entire continent, because a “strong, vibrant” transatlantic relationship was “vital”.

Dimitris Gontikas, vice-president and managing director of Energean Greece, added that it was a “great honour” to host Menezes and his company at Greece's sole hydrocarbon-producing facilities, which are owned and operated by Energean.

“We are proud that through our investment in Prinos Oil Field rejuvenation, our company has led the way towards a new era in Greece's hydrocarbon history, and supported the Greek State in its decision to expand E&P activity in new areas in Western Greece, the Ionian Sea and offshore Crete,” Gontikas added.
