Results from the campaign, performed by Gardline’sMVSea Explorer survey vessel, will assist final surface positioning of a planned well later this year (Catalyst is currently attempting to secure a rig).
Catalyst has a 100% operated interest inblocks 14/11, 14/12 and 14/16, which contain Partridge. The structure is in the Jura sub-basin of the Outer Moray Firth and is adjacent to the Scapa, Claymore, and Athena oil fields.
Partridge’s pre-drill recoverable volumes are estimated at 119-260 MMboe. It has a relatively shallow and normally-pressured reservoir: the well will likely cost $8-9 million to drill.
