Siccar Point Energy has concluded well-testing operations on the 204/10a-5 appraisal well in the Cambo field, northwest of Shetland. A vertical pilot hole was initially drilled, confirming over 100 ft of oil column and a higher-than-anticipated net pay of 58 ft. Extensive logging and coring were conducted, confirming a high-quality multi-Darcy reservoir with petrophysical properties better than anticipated. A 1,612‑ft horizontal section was then drilled to conduct an extended well test. Following initial well-cleanup operations, the well was successfully tested on natural flow for 10 days. Initial results indicate excellent reservoir productivity and sustained flow. The results of the well will be incorporated into the Cambo field development plan and the well suspended for use as a future development well. Earlier in 2018, Siccar’s partner Shell acquired a 30% nonoperated working interest in UK Continental Shelf licenses P1028 and P1189 (incorporating the Cambo discovery) and a 22.5% nonoperated working interest in P1830.
