LONDON, Dec. 21 Operator Lundin Petroleum AB expects to start oil production in first-quarter 2008 from its development well 2/5-25 in Broom field on Block 2/5 on the UK continental shelf.

Lundin is using the GSF Arctic II semisubmersible rig to drill the well under the field development's Phase 3. Drilling is under way on the sidetrack to one of three production wells on the West Heather structure. It will be tied-back to the existing Heather platform. "The well will receive pressure support from the existing injection wells," Lundin said.

Broom field has 30.9 million boe of proved plus probable gross reserves remaining, with gross total recoverables of 54.7 million boe. Formerly called West Heather and discovered in 1977, Broom has oil in Middle and Upper Jurassic reservoirs (OGJ Online, Aug. 7, 2005).

Lundin Petroleum holds a 55% interest, and it is working with Challenger Minerals (North Sea) Ltd., Palace Exploration Co. (E&P Ltd.), and Dyas UK Ltd.
