UK: Angus Energy commences drilling at Lidsey-X2
13 Sep 2017
Angus Energy has announced that following its announcement of 8 September 2017, the drilling of Lidsey-X2 has now commenced at the Lidsey oil field near Bognor Regis.
Lidsey-X2 is a conventional production well targeting the existing Great Oolite Reservoir. The existing production well Lidsey-X1 has been temporarily suspended due to the site preparation works required for the drilling of Lidsey-X2. Design options are currently under consideration to either convert the LidseyX1 into a water injector or perform production from the Kimmeridge. No decision will be made until a full analysis of the Lidsey-X2 drilling results are complete.
The Lidsey-X2 is expected to pass through the Kimmeridge formation enabling Angus Energy to assess its potential at the southern edge of the Weald Basin. The formation will be logged thoroughly as part of the drilling process.
The Company’s operational guidance from 8 Sept 2017 is unchanged. The current works have an expected operating window of approximately six weeks before actual production from the Lidsey-X2 horizontal well commences.
Interest in Lidsey Oil Field (PL 241):
Following the acquisition of a 10% interest from Terrain Energy (see RNS 4 May 2017) the Group will own a 60% direct interest in the Lidsey Oil Field and a 50% economic interest in the Lidsey-X2 well which is held under UK Production Licence PL 241.
Paul Vonk, Angus Energy’s Managing Director, commented:
'The Lidsey-X2 production well aligns with our business plan of providing long term, cost efficient, low geological risk, conventional oil production. We remain focused on providing value to our shareholders and look forward to re-commencing production from the Lidsey oil field.'
