The drilling in Cyprus of the offshore Block 11 will proceed the process on July 12,
by the French oil and gas company Total and Italy's ENI.
Country Director for Total E & P Cyprus, Yves Grosjean, said West Capella is on its way to Cyprus and is expected to reach 12 July.
The punch will begin at Block 11, called "Onisiforos," as soon as a few tests last less than a week, he added.
The sea level in the area is around 1,700 m.
And the boreholes in the background will be as large as 3,500 - 4,000 m.
The drilling will take about two to three months, and the preliminary results are expected to be released around September and October, followed by preparations for the final results.
Total decided to re-examine Block 11 of Cyprus after the discovery of the Zohr gas field in Egypt in 2015, just six kilometers away from "Onisiforos".
