Siccar Point Energy proved oil and gas in the deepwater Blackrock prospect west of Shetland with a well drilled in 1115 m of water in license P1830, 10 km north of the Cambo field. The main target was intra‑volcanic Paleocene Flett reservoirs of the Colsay member, on trend with equivalent oil-filled sandstones in the Rosebank field. The well intersected 34 m of intra-volcanic siliciclastic sediments containing thin, oil-bearing sandstones. Partner in the development is Suncor Energy UK.
