Europa Oil & Gas Boosts Production Rates at West Firsby Oil Field

Europa Oil & Gas provided an update of operations at the West Firsby oil field, Lincolnshire. Following a sequence of experimental production runs, it is clear that the field has been underperforming and the wells can produce at much higher levels.

Production from the WF-7 well has now been increased from a 2008 average of 87bopd to 133bopd. The well has been producing at this level for the past 20 days and represents a 53% production increase for the well over previous levels.

The production from the WF-6 well has now been increased from a 2008 average of 31bopd to 40bopd. The well produced at this level for the 14 days prior to being shut-in for the WF-7 production trial and represents a 29% production increase for the well over previous levels.

The field is currently producing on WF-7 alone. It is planned to improve the surface facilities over the coming months and bring both wells up to a combined rate of 170bopd, an anticipated 50% increase over H1 2008 field production volumes.

The re-mapping exercise for the field is reaching a conclusion, which will feed into planning a potential new development well, WF-9, for which planning permission has already been obtained.
