ABERDEEN, UK – Diamond Offshore’s semisubmersible Ocean GreatWhite has P&A’d the Lyon exploration well west of Shetland after finding only gas shows.

Siccar Point Energy and partner Ineos had high hopes of proving a new play in Eocene Balder sandstone in license P1854.

Drilling, however, did not encounter reservoir-quality sandstone.

Jonathan Roger, CEO of Siccar Point, said: “We look forward to continuing to explore the area, which we believe still has prospectivity, and will be looking at participating in forthcoming UK licensing rounds in order to do that.”
