() chair David Bramhill has highlighted that the West Newton project has confirmed substantial conventional onshore hydrocarbon discoveries, as the company detailed a number of findings of ongoing study at the project.

Analysis of both the West Newton A and West Newton B sites has confirmed thick reservoir development for the Kirkham Abbey formation – measured over 75 metres thickness in the WNA-1 well, 66.5 metres in the WNA-2 well, and 68 metres in the WNB-1z sidetrack.

Liquid hydrocarbons were recovered to surface at each well and samples were taken for analysis. At WNA-1 it was confirmed as 41 degree API oil, at WNA-2 it was light oil/condensate recovered to surface, measured to be 44 API and further analysis is taking place. For WNB-1z it was described to be liquid hydrocarbons with a similar geochemical fingerprint as WNA-2. Good quality gas was also recovered, and incinerated, at the WNA-2 and WNB-1z sites.

“In order to unlock the value potential at West Newton and across the PEDL183 licence, over the coming weeks a number of external studies will be conducted, encompassing a wide range of potential reservoir stimulation treatments, the results of which could be applied to the West Newton series of wells in order to achieve optimum flow rates,” David Bramhill said in a statement.
