HAVANA December 15, 2012 (AP)
Cuban authorities say a Norwegian-owned platform has arrived in waters
off the island's north-central coast for exploratory drilling by Russian
oil company Zarubezhneft.
State-run Cubapetroleo says the Songa Mercur rig has been inspected and
is capable of drilling as safely as possible and with minimum
environmental risk. The well project is given as 21,300 feet (6,500
meters) deep and is expected to take six months.
