Ithaca Energy is preparing to conduct a drill stem test at its Stella appraisal well, 30/6a-8, in the UK sector of the North Sea. Drilled by the GSF Galaxy II jackup, the well was drilled to a total measured depth of 10,863 feet (3,311 meter) to appraise the downdip extension of the gas condensate rich Palaeocene Andrew sands (Stella’s primary reservoir). Electric wireline logs and coring were performed, confirming a 22-foot (7-meter) gross Andrew sand interval. Additionally, pressure and fluid sampling was undertaken across the sand reservoir interval and based on the analysis, a DST will now be conducted. The Stella field is located on Block 30/6 in a water depth of 280 feet (85 meters). Ithaca Energy serves as the operator of the field.
