Tullow Says Harrison Well Encounters Gas
Tullow Oil reports that the Harrison exploration well (44/19b-6), operated by ConocoPhillips, has successfully encountered a 16m gas column in the targeted Lower Ketch formation. The well, 20km to the northeast of the Murdoch platform, has been drilled to a depth of 4,289m and will now be flow tested. All of the drilling was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.
Commenting today, Aidan Heavey, Chief Executive of Tullow said:
"This is the eighth consecutive discovery that Tullow has made in the CMS Area since we acquired the UK assets in 2001. Early assessment of the data from the well shows that it is in line with our pre-drill expectations and that analogous prospects in this, and adjacent blocks, have been substantially de-risked."
