Rockhopper Exploration provided results following analysis of wireline MDT samples obtained from its Sea Lion 14/10-2 oil discovery well. Samples analyzed under reservoir conditions were confirmed as medium-grade crude with an API of 26.4 to 29.2 degree. The wax contact of 18.4% to 20.8% is typical for a lacustrice sourced crude oil and is significantly lower than other producing oil fields worldwide, according to Rockhopper. Furthermore, the viscosity, gas oil ratio, FVF and sulfur are better than anticipated, said the company. The Sea Lion discovery is located on Block 14/10 in Production Licenses 032 and 033 on the eastern basin margin of the Falkland Islands. Rockhopper wholly owns and operates the field.
