Fatih drillship headed towards Famagusta

The Turkish drillship Fatih has left the coast of Karpasia and is heading towards the Famagusta area, according to a marine traffic website which records the movements of ships all over the world.

Last week, Turkey’s Energy Minister Fatih Donmez said the ship was in Mersin for refuelling and maintenance, and was set to begin drilling in a few weeks.

The Fatih left its location west of Cyprus where it had been anchored since May. While there it had carried out drilling in two locations dubbed by Turkey as ‘Finike1’ and ‘Finike 2’.
