LONDON -- EnCore Oil will complete its Breagh horizontal well 42/13-5z on block 42/13 in the southern North Sea as a producer.
The well tested dry gas at a maximum rate of 26 MMcf/d through an 80/64-in. choke at a flowing wellhead pressure of around 890 psi. The well was then shut-in for an initial pressure build up survey after which the well was flowed for a further 59 hours at various rates.
The well will now be suspended to allow future re-entry as a production well.
"This well, in particular, has added significantly to our understanding of the continuity and characteristics of the Breagh reservoir," says Alan Booth, EnCore's CEO.
"These encouraging results give the group momentum to move the Breagh field on to the next phase of its development."
