A well testing deep gas potential in the Ravenspurn area of the southern UK North Sea has been plugged, reports Premier Oil (OGJ Online, Dec. 7, 2016).

Prior to drilling, BP PLC, with an 85% equity interest, had said the Ravenspurn North Deep well would test the potential for a new gas play in Carboniferous strata “several hundred meters” below pay at the Ravenspurn ST2 platform operated by Perenco.

Perenco, with a 10% interest, operated the deep test during drilling and testing.

Premier, with 5%, said the Rowan Gorilla VII jack up has been moved off location.
