HALIFAX — Shell has plugged the first of its deepwater exploration wells off Nova Scotia, saying it didn’t find enough oil to make it worth proceeding.
The well is located about 250 kilometres offshore of Halifax on the Scotian shelf.
The company says in a news release that the work on the Cheshire well was completed last week.
It says it has started working on a second exploration well, Monterey Jack, at a location about 120 kilometres southwest of the Cheshire location.
