Spudding of Exploration Well on Darwin

25 October 2012

Fairfield Energy, a North Sea-focused independent oil and gas company, is pleased to announce that the first well of a three well campaign in the Darwin area spudded on 23 October.  The well is being drilled from the Ocean Nomad and is operated by Fairfield.
The Darwin area includes the southern end of Block 211/27a (previously known as the NW Hutton field) together with an extension into Block 211/27e and lies approximately 130 km northeast of the Shetland Islands in the Northern North Sea.
The drilling campaign follows a multi-year programme of subsurface work comprising new 3D seismic and static/dynamic modeling which has resulted in the identification of significant in-place volumes. Fairfield holds a 50% interest in both blocks following a 50% farm-out to TAQA Bratani earlier this year.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Chris Wright, CEO, said:
 
“This exploration and appraisal programme is a very exciting event in the history of our company. The multi-well programme is testing a significant opportunity which has the potential to be a material North Sea field.”
