  • Finally, someone has noticed the glaring gap in US Onshore E&P acreage data and actually done something about it. 1Derrick's US Onshore Maps Database is not just an elegant product, it is hugely informative. By mining and aggregating our competitors' own public disclosures and mapping them in one single database, 1Derrick's US Onshore Maps Database allows us to quickly see complete acreage positions side by side and determine where there are holes, who might be a good partner, who might be a good target, and to understand the key players in any US play. We use the US Onshore Maps Database every day as we continue to mold our strategy.

    BP made a gas discovery at Qattameya Shallow-1 exploration well in the North Damietta Offshore Concession in the East Nile Delta, Egypt. The well is located 60 km north of Damietta city, 30 km south-west of Salamat and only 35 km to the west of Ha’py offshore facilities.

    The exploration well was drilled to a total depth of 1,961m in water depth of approximately 108m using the El Qaher II jack-up rig. The wireline logs, pressure data and fluid samples confirmed the presence of 37m of net gas pay in high quality Pliocene sandstones.

    BP has 100% equity in the discovery.

    Cairn Energy has discovered oil at VR-1 well, offshore Senegal.

    The VR-1 well is located approximately 5 km west of the SNE-1 discovery well and is being drilled to appraise the lower and upper reservoir units in the western part of the SNE field.

    The well has reached a depth of 2759m, wireline logging and sampling through the SNE section are complete and preparations are underway for deepening the well into the Aptian carbonate objectives below the SNE field.

    FAR’s evaluation of the well results are as follows:

    • The reservoir units are in oil as prognosed
    • The lower, 500 series 520 reservoir (16m in oil), a key reservoir to the phase 1 development of the SNE field, exhibited excellent reservoir properties, superior to all other reservoirs sampled in the SNE field to date
    • The deeper 540 reservoir (11m in oil) has only been seen in the SNE-2 well in oil (2m)
    • Samples of oil have been taken
    • Along with other appraisal wells, the well confirmed a 97m gross oil column with greater than expected net pay and thickest net pay of all appraisal wells drilled to date

    The well will also assess the potential for additional reservoir units within the upper reservoirs in the western part of the SNE field. In addition, the VR-1 well will examine deeper Aptian carbonate exploration targets under the SNE field.

    Hurricane Energy has discovered oil at 205/23-3A well (the Halifax well), offshore UK.

    The principal objective of the Halifax well was to support the company's view that the Lancaster Field and the Halifax prospect are one large connected structure. The Halifax well has successfully identified an extensive oil column, significantly below local structural closure. The reservoir interval encountered is pervasively fractured with porosities similar to those at Lancaster. The company believes that the deeper oil down to (ODT) at 1,846m true vertical depth subsea (TVDSS) identified in the Halifax Well, compared with an oil water contact (OWC) at Lancaster at 1,678m TVDSS, and is most likely caused by a tilted OWC.

    The Halifax well was drilled by the Spitsbergen rig, and cased to 1,179m TVDSS in accordance with the company's drilling program which was designed to isolate a potential gas cap and oil bearing column to a depth of 100m true vertical thickness (TVT) below structural closure. It was subsequently drilled to 1,801m TVDSS and a Drill Stem Test (DST) was undertaken. The well was finally TD'ed at 2,004m TVDSS, with no confirmed OWC encountered.

    Preliminary third party analysis from the Halifax Well indicates:

    • a very significant hydrocarbon column of at least 1,156m is present within the basement extending well below local structural closure (which is at 1,040m TVDSS);
    • that the basement reservoir below the final casing point (1,179m TVDSS) is pervasively fractured (based on initial analysis of borehole image logs processing); and
    • that porosity is consistent with that at Lancaster (based on initial petrophysical analysis)

    The Halifax well has now been suspended.

    Exploration

    Statoil has made a minor discovery at 34/10-55 S well in PL193, North Sea. The well was drilled from the Gullfaks C platform to a structure east of the Gimle field, about 7 km north-east of the Gullfaks field and 7 km south of the Visund Sor field in the northern part of the North Sea.

    The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic, Early Jurassic and Late Triassic reservoir rocks (Brent group, Statfjord group and Lunde formation).

    34/10-55 S was drilled to a vertical and measured depth of 3228m and 7811m, respectively, below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Lunde formation in the Triassic. Water depth is 220m.

    Well 34/10-55 S encountered a total oil and gas column of about 170m, of which 60m are in sandstone with good to very good reservoir properties in the Statfjord group and 10m in sandstone with moderate to good properties in the Lunde formation.

    Preliminary calculations indicate that the discovery contains between 1-3 MMcm of recoverable oil equivalents. The discovery will be produced from a subsequent development well from the Gullfaks C platform.

    The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
