Fossil Energy – Petrogas
Petrogas North Sea announced that the HDJU Maersk Resilient spudded the Birgitta East appraisal well on the 30th of January 2022.
The well is appraising the 22/19a-1 gas discovery ‘Birgitta’ drilled in 1984, and is anticipated to last 50 days, TD’ing at around 4099m MD.
Nick Dancer, Director of Petrogas North Sea: “We are excited to finally begin our appraisal well on Birgitta, which if successful, should allow for a relatively quick and straightforward development, unlocking a longtime stranded gas discovery to be brought into production, complimenting the domestic gas production of the UK.”
Kingsuk Sen, VP Petrogas Europe and CCO: “This is an important step in broadening Petrogas’ activities within Europe, and applying our expertise gained in the Netherlands to the appraisal and hopefully development of the Birgitta Field.”
