Trap Oil: UKCS Romeo field operations plugged, abandoned
LONDON -- Trap Oil Group, focused on the UK Continental Shelf region of the North Sea, said field operations are now close to being completed on the Romeo License P.1666, Block 30/11c exploration prospect, and are now being plugged and abandoned in accordance with the partnership group's agreed work program.
This tight hole exploration well has been drilled to a depth of 15,319 ft and reached its targeted total depth and satisfied the license obligation. Well encountered hydrocarbons at three different stratigraphic levels within the Jurassic and Triassic comprising in aggregate some 200 ft of gross oil pay. Oil encountered was of a similar type to the nearby Fulmar Field and was recovered to the surface from one of the three zones. No drill stem tests have been conducted.
Partners in License P.1666 are Suncor Energy 50.625% operator, Norwegian Energy 21.875%, First Oil and Gas 15.0% and Trapoil 12.5%. Well was drilled jointly with Total E&P which has a 100% interest and is the operator of the neighboring Block 29/15a on license P.1816. Trapoil also said it has relinquished, to the Department of Energy and Climate Change, its interests in three promoting licenses.
