The drilling rig for the continuation of the geothermal project on Montserrat in the Caribbean has arrived and preparation for the drilling of the third well can start.

The drilling for a third well for the geothermal project on the island of Montserrat, a British territory in the Caribbean can start.

The rig for the drilling has arrived on the island and is being transported to the site. The rig arrived on Port Plymouth.

With the third well the project aims to get closer to the core of the geothermal reservoir on the island and drill a reinjection well.
