Drilling of the Bream appraisal well in PL 407, 50 km Northwest of the Yme Field in the North Sea has started. Dependent upon the results of the vertical wellbore, a horizontal sidetrack could be drilled and a DST performed.
The Bream appraisal well is aimed at determining the commerciality of the Bream oil discovery, and provided positive well results, the license group is targeting a PDO in 2010.
The well is operated by BG on behalf of the PL 407 license group using the rig West Alpha.
Spring Energy has a 20% working interest in the license.
