The drilling operation is expected to take approximately 30 - 40 days, and will target the Middle Jurassic Brent Group of sandstones at a depth of approximately 12,500 ft (3,810m). A decision regarding whether it will be necessary to test the 22a-7 well or case it immediately for future production will be taken based on electric log data once the well has reached target depth.
The third well in the planned program will be drilled immediately following the completion of drilling operations on 22a-7 and is designed to appraise the 211/22a-3 discovery made in 1984 which tested up to 5,500 bopd from the same sequence of Brent sandstones in the southwest fault compartment of the Causeway structure.
Participants in the Causeway Prospect are Antrim as operator with 65.5%; NOR Energy with 10.5%; GeysirPetroleum HF with 10% and Valiant Petroleum with 14%.
