GUILDFORD, UK – Both production wells have been drilled and cased to TD for Zennor Petroleum’s Finlaggan field development in the UK central North Sea.

The project, in blocks 21/05c and 21/05d, license P2013, is targeting 30 MMboe of gas condensate from the two subsea production wells which will be tied back 20 km (12.4 mi) to the ConocoPhillips-operated Britannia platform.

In each case, drilling has delivered long and productive lateral sections through the Lower Cretaceous reservoirs, the company said, with the F1 well demonstrating good-quality hydrocarbon bearing sands in the northern extension of Finlaggan, and F2 proving sand continuity over the previously interpreted fault between the field’s southern two segments.

Completion and clean-up operations should finish during the current quarter.

Late last month Zennor executed all the main offtake agreements providing for export of Finlaggan production through the Britannia facilities, the Forties Pipeline System, the SAGE Terminal, and the SEGAL System.

First production should follow in late 2020.
