Apache announced a significant oil discovery on Block 9/18a Area-W in the United Kingdom North Sea. The Garten discovery well, located 3.7 miles south of the Beryl Alpha platform, targeted a downthrown structural closure and encountered more than 700 ft of net oil pay in stacked, high-quality Jurassic sandstone reservoirs. The recoverable resource is expected to exceed 10 million bbl of light oil, which is at the high end of predrill estimates. Apache has a 100% working interest in the block.
