Substantial Time and Cost Savings for Invictus Energy

According to Managing Director Scott Macmillan, retaining the Exalo Rig 202 in the basin will lead to substantial time and cost savings for the company. This is especially significant when compared to the expenses involved in demobilizing and remobilizing a drilling rig for future campaigns. The performance of Exalo and Rig 202 has been exceptional, prompting Invictus to extend their relationship with Exalo for future drilling and testing campaigns.
