PA Resources announced that a recently drilled sidetrack of the gas discovery, Broder Tuck, has confirmed an additional hydrocarbon column with higher than expected condensate content.
The well was sidetracked to a location of about 2,231 feet (680 meters) from the initial well, where the Middle Jurassic sandstone contained hydrocarbons. In total, the well has established a gross hydrocarbon column of at least 1,181 feet (360 meters) from the crest of the structure down to the base of the Middle Jurassic sandstone in this sidetrack.
The operator also confirmed that the discovered hydrocarbons are high-quality gas with condensate of about 44 degree API, at a ratio of nearly 80 to 90 barrels of condensate per MMcf/d. Broder Tuck lies in the Danish part of the North Sea. PA Resources UK Limited operates the discovery, holding a 64% interest; Nordsofonden holds 20%; Danoil Exploration holds 8%; and Spyker Energy holds the remaining 8%.
