This Traditional licence is located north and adjacent to the world class Britannia field. The primary focus on the block is the Lower Cretaceous Britannia Sandstone Formation ‘Five Star’ prospect. This large stratigraphic trap represents an extension to the Britannia field reservoir sands to the north and west of the field with pinch-out of sands confirmed to the north by numerous well penetrations.
The committed work programme comprises obtaining and reprocessing seismic data and undertaking additional geotechnical studies focused on establishing a robust sand indicator over the licence area. Once this work has been completed it is likely that the company will be seeking partners to join in the drilling of an exploration well on the ‘Five Star’ prospect.
