Angus completes Lidsey producer

Well at onshore UK oilfield to be brought online once drilling rig is demobilised

London-listed Angus Energy has completed drilling of a production well at the onshore Lidsey oilfield in the UK.

The Lidsey-X2 well was drilled to a total depth of 1700 metres and will produce from a 433-metre net oil pay section in the Great Oolite limestone reservoir, at a depth of 1230 – 1673 metres.

The well will be brought into production following the demobilisation of the BDF-28 drilling rig.

Angus also noted an unexpected change in the lithology of the well towards the end of the horizontal section of the Great Oolite reservoir which it said indicated a potential extension continuing to the west of the original reservoir.

“I am pleased with the successful drilling of the well. We are encouraged the site offers further scope for development,” Angus managing director Paul Vonk said.

“Significantly, the company has upgraded the surface facilities at Lidsey to efficiently and safely manage all future production.”

Angus increased its interest in the Lidsey field to 60% earlier this year. The field lies in PL 24 at the southern edge of the Weald basin, near Bognor Regis.
