Phillips drilled two wells in the same block during 1967, one in August and the other in September. But all were dry.

When it was awarded its three licences, the Phillips group had undertaken to drill five wells in different structures – including at least one in blocks covered by each licence – over six years. Seismic surveys were also to be conducted in the same period.
