Cluff Makes 'Progress' with North Sea Gas, Coal Gasification Assets

Cluff Natural Resources reported Monday that "significant progress" has been made in accelerating the development of its southern North Sea gas and underground coal gasification (UGC) assets in the UK, thanks to its memorandum of understanding with Halliburton Manufacturing and Services Limited.

Cluff and Halliburton are currently working together on a structure that will facilitate and accelerate the drilling of one or more wells on Cluff's conventional licenses in the southern North Sea. At the same time, Halliburton is providing technical and geological assistance in the development of the southern North Sea assets and the firm's Kincardine UCG project in the Firth of Forth, Scotland. Cluff said this technical support is being utilized to develop the proposed submission of a planning application for a UCG production test at Kincardine.

Cluff has five licenses covering a total of 11 blocks in the southern North Sea for conventional gas exploration as a result of the UK's 28th Offshoring Licensing Round, which was completed last year. The firm also has a portfolio of nine licenses that give it exposure to five different coal basins in Scotland, England and Wales. At Kincardine, it is looking to develop the UK's first deep offshore UCG project.

Cluff Chief Executive and Chairman Algy Cluff commented in a company statement:

"We are delighted with the progress that has been made since the signing of the MOU with Halliburton in February. We are excited about the prospect of continuing to develop our strategic relationship with Halliburton with a view to accelerating the development and commercialisation of our assets and look forward to providing further updates in due course."
