Assessment continues of North Sea Verbier area
Equinor will complete its re-evaluation of the P2170 license in the UK central North Sea, despite a recent dry appraisal well on the Verbier oil discovery.
The semisubmersibleWest Phoenix has moved off location after concluding operations on well 20/05b-14.
Equinor will combine the results and data collected during operations with processed 3D broadband seismic over the area, due to be delivered in June, in an attempt to better understand the reservoir distribution of the primary target.
According to partnerJersey Oil & Gas, there will also be an assessment of prospectivity in the deeper targets and other previously identified exploration opportunities, including Cortina.
