Privately held operator ONE-Dyas confirmed last month a new gas discovery with its latest well in the Gems Area of the Dutch North Sea, where proven volumes now stand at about 10 billion cubic metres and total risked resources at about 50 Bcm.

The success at N04-03 well, also known in Dutch as Turkoois (Turquoise in English), "furthermore confirmed the Gems play", according to the operator.

The prospect is located near ONE-Dyas' N05-A project also in the Gems Area.
