Europa license off Ireland extended

Europa Oil & Gas has received a 12-month extension for the first phase of frontier exploration license 2/13 offshore Ireland to July 4, 2020. Approval by the Irish government came at the expiration of a 2-year extension of the license.

Europa Oil & Gas (Holdings) PLC has received a 12-month extension for the first phase of frontier exploration license (FEL) 2/13 offshore Ireland to July 4, 2020.

Approval by the Irish government came at the expiration of a 2-year extension of the license (OGJ Online, June 20, 2017).

The license is on the west flank of the South Porcupine basin.

Europa said it plans an FEL 2/13 exploration well on a prospect designated Kiely East. It said its next steps include integration of recently purchased 3D seismic data “with particular focus on mapping the extension of Kiely East into open acreage to the south of the license.”

Europa Oil holds a 100% interest.
