The Black Sea is divided into two separate basins, the Western and Eastern Black Sea Basins (WBSB and EBSB), divided by the Mid-Black Sea High (Andrusov Ridge and Arkhangelsky High, Fig. 1). Whereas about 20 deepwater exploration wells were drilled in the WBSB, the EBSB saw only 3 wells to date (Tari and Simmons, 2018). The first one of these, the HPX-1 well were drilled by BP in the Turkish sector of the EBSB, very close to the Georgian maritime border in 2005. This well spud in 1,529 m water depth and it was the first truly deepwater well in the entire Black Sea.
