This Innovate licence is located north of and adjacent to the world class Claymore and Scapa fields. A number of Lower Cretaceous Scapa Sandstone Formation prospects have been identified on the licence with the primary focus being the ‘Bird’ prospect. These large stratigraphic traps are associated with a seismically derived direct hydrocarbon indicator.
The work programme consists of obtaining new seismic data and undertaking a number of subsurface studies aimed at better delineating the prospective resource ranges and geological risks associated with these prospects. 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 to test the ‘Bird’ prospect.
