PARIS -- GDF SUEZ and First Oil Expro have hit gas pay with the Juliet well in the southern basin sector of the UK continental shelf.

TheNoble Piet van Eide drilled the well to a total depth of 9,502 ft (2,896 m), and it flowed at rates of up to 38 MMcf/d of gas, the company says.

The forward plan for Juliet is to evaluate the development options during the first half of 2009 with the possibility of first gas in late 2010 or early 2011, the company says.
