DENVER, Colorado -- The Durango 48/21a-4z well in the North Sea has successfully tested at a rate of 42.5 MMcf/d of natural gas and an average 1,341 b/d of 61º API condensate on a 1-in. (2.5-cm) choke, according to Bridge Resources.

Bridge plans to proceed with a tie-in to the Waveney platform, operated by Perenco, located 14.3 km (8.9 mi) northeast, pending field development approval by the Secretary of State.

The Durango well penetrated 580 ft (177 m) of near horizontal reservoir section within the top 15 ft (4.6 m) of the gas column at a depth of 9,026 ft (2,751 m). Average porosity is 19% ranging up to 22% and protective sand screens were run in the wellbore across the entire reservoir section, the company says.

First gas is planned for October 1.
