    Exploration, Others

    Rocksource Exploration announced that VNG Norge has spud the Bue sidetrack well (6406/12-3A) to the North of the Pil discovery in PL586, Norwegian Sea. The sidetrack will be drilled by the Transocean Arctic and is expected to take approximately 30 days.

    The Bue sidetrack follows the successful appraisal well on the Pil discovery. The results from the appraisal well led Rocksource to update its resource estimate for Pil to a range of 90-150 MMBOE with a mean volume of 115 MMBOE.

    Bue has an unrisked volume potential of 8-32 MMBOE (Rocksource estimate), and is regarded as a medium risk exploration prospect.

    PL586 ownership: VNG (30%, operator), Spike Exploration (30%), Faroe Petroleum (25%) and Rocksource (15%).
