Antrim Begins Pre-Drilling Site Surveys in North Sea

Antrim Energy has contracted the survey vessel Kommander Jack to obtain site surveys in preparation for the 2011 UK North Sea drilling program.

Surveys will be obtained over the West Teal, Carra and Erne prospects, located in the Greater Fyne Area in Blocks 21/24b, 21/28b and 21/29d. According to Antrim, the West Teal and Carra surveys are expected to confirm the surface drilling locations for two wells targeting the Jurassic Fulmar and Eocene Tay formations, respectively. The Erne survey was added to the exploration program to identify a surface location for a contingent well on that feature, an oil prospect in the Eocene Tay formation.

The site surveys should be completed in May in preparation for the exploratory drilling program scheduled to start mid-year 2011. The three prospects are wholly owned and operated by Antrim Energy.
