Sterling Resources Ltd. (TSXV:SLG) completes drilling of the 210/30a-4Z well on Block 210/30a in the United Kingdom North Sea.
The press release is quoted as saying:
The 210/30a-4Z well was drilled at a location 1.6 kilometers east and a further 1240 feet downdip of the most recent 210/30a-4 well, utilizing the Transocean Prospect rig from a centrally positioned location. The objectives of the 210/30a-4Z sidetrack well were to appraise the field further east of previous well control and prove sand and oil presence in a fan system considerably deeper than previous wells which have been drilled into channel systems on a terrace structure. The 210/30a-4Z well was drilled to a total measured depth (MD) of 15,900 feet having encountered two separate Upper Jurassic reservoir zones of 12 and 169 feet (vertical thickness) with oil shows through both intervals. No oil-water contact was encountered.
