Tungsten Explorer moved from Beirut to Larnaca

The Tungsten Explorer drillship anchored off the port of Larnaca on Thursday.

Reports said the vessel will be hot stacked off Cyprus for the next few months, reversing prior plans to head out to Trinidad after completing drilling offshore Lebanon in Block 4.

It is the same vessel which ENI and Total had intended to use for drilling off Cyprus this spring, before plans were scuttled due to the coronavirus situation.
