The 22a-8 well was drilled into the southwestern fault compartment to a depth of 12,830ft (3,910m) and has intersected a pay section similar to that encountered in the previously drilled 211/22a-3 well (1984) which tested up to 5,500 bopd from the Jurassic Ness Formation. The 22a-8 was drilled approximately 1.4 km northeast of the 22a-3 location and encountered the Ness pay zone at a structural elevation 25ft (8m) higher than at 22a-3. Logging operations are continuing on the well. The additional logging, casing and testing operations are expected to take approximately 14 days to complete.
On completion of the 22a-8 operations, drilling will start on a fourth well targeting the Brent sequence of sandstones in the northern portion of the central fault compartment.
