Statoil Exploration Ireland has completed exploratory drilling in the Cong prospect in the Slyne basin off north-west Ireland without success.
The exploration well has been plugged and abandoned.
Drilling was carried out by the Sedco 711 semi-submersible rig on contract from Transocean. Well data will now be analysed
to ascertain whether further exploration of the area would be worthwhile.
