Repsol has not found any oil in the first well where the test drilling has been going on since 18 November east of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.
The Oil adventure outside the Canaries can thus be over even before it has begun.
Repsol has contacted the authorities in Guinea about the drilling ship Rowan Renaissance that has been used during the test drilling. They can start test drillings outside the coast of Guinea in about 14 days. One of the supply ships that has been assisting Rowan Renaissance has already left the test drilling field.
