Trapoil has announced that a contract has been signed for a jack-up rig for the drilling of a well to test the Niobe prospect, in the North Sea.

The Niobe prospect, formerly named Kratos, is located in the Licence P.1889, Blocks 12/26b and 12/27, within the Moray Firth. Suncor Energy UK is the operator with 49.5 percent equity interest, Noreco has a 22.5 percent equity interest and Trap Oil Limited has a 28 percent equity interest.

According to Suncor’s Niobe exploration well Environmental Statement, the well is planned for 2Q 2015 continuing for a period of up to 45 days. The jack-up drilling rig will be towed to location using a maximum of three tugs.

Suncor notes that the primary objectives of the Niobe exploration well are to establish the presence of productive, hydrocarbon bearing reservoirs in the primary target, Upper Jurassic Burns sandstones; and to determine the economic viability of the hydrocarbon volumes entrapped within the structure through the identification of reservoir properties of the primary target.

Licence P.1293, Block 14/18b – Athena Oil  Field (Athena)

The Athena Oil Field (Athena), in which Trapoil holds a 15 per cent. equity interest, has stabilised at gross production rates of approximately 4,800 bopd (720 bopd net to Trapoil) following the work over on the P4 production well and further intervention work on the P1 and P3 production wells.

In the 28th Seaward Licensing Round, Trapoil was awarded Licence P2170, Blocks 20/5b and 21/1d with its consortium partner CIECO Exploration and Production (UK) Limited where each party currently has a 50 per cent. interest.
