Siccar Point Energy, Aberdeen, has abandoned an exploratory well on its Lyon Prospect in the West of Shetlands area offshore the UK (OGJ Online, Mar. 19, 2019).

It said 44 m of siltstone and claystone in the target Eocene Balder formation had gas shows, but the 208/02-1 well encountered no reservoir-quality sandstone.

The Diamond Ocean GreatWhite semisubmersible rig drilled the well to 4,005 m below sea level in 1,452 m of water.

Siccar Point, the operator, holds a 33.34% interest. Ineos holds 66.66%.
