    GDF SUEZ E&P UK reports Southern North Sea gas discovery

    GDF SUEZ E&P UK Ltd.

    GDF SUEZ E&P UK Ltd. has reported a new gas discovery in the UK Southern North Sea (SNS). The Cepheus 44/12a-6 exploration well has encountered a gas column within the Permian Lower Leman Sandstone, which was the primary reservoir target. 

    The well was spudded on March 9 and drilled to a total measured depth (MD) of 12, 125 feet (11,730 feet TVDSS – total vertical depth subsea). It was deviated north-eastward from a top hole location in Block 44/12a to the target location in Block 44/12b (License P1731). The TSF Monarch rig is scheduled to move off location on May 29 after plugging and abandonment operations.

    Jean-Claude Perdigues, managing director of GDF SUEZ E&P UK, commented, “This is a timely and pleasing announcement of an exploration discovery near to the Cygnus development where excellent progress is being made on the installation of the first offshore structures. The discovery supports our strategy to add value to the Cygnus field through its development as a hub for the wider area, and it consolidates the SNS as a core area for GDF SUEZ.”

    Equity interests in the P1731 license are operator GDF SUEZ E&P UK (34.48%) and partners Centrica North Sea Gas Ltd. (48.28%) and Bayerngas E&P Ltd. (17.24%).
