Helium One appoints drilling contractor in Tanzania


Helium One this week (22nd March) announced the appointment of Mitchell Drilling Limited as drilling contractor for its maiden three well exploration programme on its Rukwa Project in Tanzania – a move that could see drilling commence this May.

Sharing details of the appointment, Helium One said it has agreed terms with Mitchell Drilling for completion of the three-hole exploration programme. With Mitchell Drilling holding over 50 years of experience, the company is very pleased with its appointment.

As a demonstration of support for the programme, Mitchell Drilling have agreed to upgrade the drill- rig and supply a larger rig at no additional cost. The selected rig offers increased capacity, providing additional drilling power to the exploration campaign.
