LONDON -- Providence Resources has awarded the Spanish Point 3D seismic survey acquisition contract to Bergen Oilfield Services AS. The 3D seismic survey program, which is expected to begin later this year, will cover a 300-sq km (116-sq mi) area primarily over the Jurassic Spanish Point gas condensate discovery. The survey will be acquired using the recently refitted 3D seismic survey vessel BOS Angler.
The original 35/8-2 Spanish Point discovery well flowed 1,000 b/d of oil and 5 MMcf/d of gas from one of four logged hydrocarbon bearing intervals. Third party modeling of these well data has suggested that an optimally placed and stimulated development well could flow at significantly higher rates from all hydrocarbon bearing intervals, the company says
