The 15/25b-10 well is the sixth appraisal well to the "Brenda" oil find, originally made in 1990 by the well 15/25b-3. The well 15/25b-6, the first well drilled by Oilexco, tested 2,980 bbl/d of 40 degrees oil through a 40/64" choke under stable flowing conditions from the Forties Sandstone in late January.
This well was followed by the tested wells 15/25b-8 and 15/25b-9Y which flow tested 4,785 bbl/d and 2,685 bbl/d respectively. The intersection of a significant oil column in a seismically defined channel sand lacking structural closure by the 15/25b-10 well has further confirmed the "Brenda" oil find to be a stratigraphic trap of sizable proportions. Oilexco has identified additional appraisal locations from its seismic interpretation to further define the limits and reserves of the "Brenda" oil accumulation.
Oilexco is in the second phase of its "Brenda" appraisal drilling program on License P1042 (100% working interest), Block 15/25b in the Outer Moray Firth, targeting oil in the Paleocene Forties Sandstone.
