HOUSTON, Feb. 23 – Nexen Inc. has spud the 15/23d-15 well on the Bugle North prospect in the UK North Sea.
The drillsite is on the boundary between blocks 15/23c and 15/23d. The well is being drilled as a joint project between two partnerships and will satisfy a license commitment for the P1465 (Bowmore area) partnership operated by Nippon Oil Exploration & Production UK Ltd. on behalf of Stratic Energy Corp., Calgary, and other partners.
The well targets the north extension of the Bugle oil discovery that was appraised by the P815 group in 2008. The Glomar Arctic IV semisubmersible is to drill Bugle North to 15,000 ft.
