Paris, March 17 - Neftegaz.RU.
Total, operator, and its partners have made an encouraging discovery with the Isabella 30/12d-11 well on the license P1820, located in the Central North Sea offshore U.K., about 40 kilometers south of the Elgin-Franklin Field and 170 kilometers east of Aberdeen.
Total reported this on March 17, 2020.
The well was drilled in a water depth of about 80 meters and encountered 64 meters net pay of lean gas and condensate and high-quality light oil, in Upper Jurassic and Triassic sandstone reservoirs.
The analysis of the data and results are ongoing to assess the discovered resources and to determine the appraisal program required to confirm commerciality.
- The initial results at Isabella are encouraging. This demonstrates that our exploration strategy in the North Sea to explore for value adding prospects nearby to our infrastructure is working.- commented Kevin McLachlan, Senior Vice President Exploration at Total.
The P1820 license is operated by Total with a 30% working interest, alongside Neptune Energy (50%), Ithaca Energy (10%) and the wholly owned subsidiary of Edison, Euroil Exploration (10%).
Total is one of the UK’s leading oil and gas operators, with equity production of 189,000 boe/d in 2019.
It principally comes from operated offshore fields in three major zones: the Alwyn/Dunbar area in the Northern North Sea, the Elgin/Franklin and Culzean area in the Central North Sea, and the Laggan-Tormore area in the West of Shetland.
