EnQuest has found oil at its wholly owned Eagle exploration well in the greater Kittiwake area of the Central North Sea. Preliminary analysis showed presence of an oil-bearing reservoir of 67-ft vertical thickness and “excellent reservoir properties,” the company said. No oil/water contact was found, which represented potential upside volumes on the structure’s flank. EnQuest anticipates gross total recoverable reserves of similar magnitude to those in the nearby Gadwall producing oil field, approximately 6 million bbl.
