Equinor targets a taste of Namibian oil riches on the other side of the Atlantic

Norwegian oil major Equinor has received the go ahead to spud a highly anticipated exploration well in the Argentina Norte basin.

The wildcat, Argerich-1, will be the first deep-water probe to be drilled more than 300 kilometres off the Argentinian coast in a promising play where the government auctioned off several blocks in its 2019 bid round.
