Drilling Activity Summary


Initial drilling results were announced by London-based Kistos from an appraisal campaign in offshore Netherlands blocks Q07 and Q10 in the North Sea. The company was targeting Vlieland Sandstone the Q07 and Q10 blocks. The well, #04 A Q10 A, encountered Vlieland at a depth of 1,562 m. The company drilled an 825-m horizontal section. It was tested flowing at a maximum stabilized rate of 3,200 bbl of 33° API oil per day. The well is now shut-in for pressure build-up test. Previous estimated 2C resources for the accumulation were between 23.1 MMboe and 67.5 MMboe (net). The venture is the first stage of a planned four-month drilling program. The Q10-A gas field was discovered through an appraisal/development well drilled in 2015 into the Q10-A structure.
