Deltic wraps up 3D seismic work
London-listed Deltic Energy announced on November 23 that it had completed a 3D seismic survey at licence P2428 in the UK North Sea, and expects to get results in the second quarter of 2022.
The ION Geophysical vessel was used for the 680-km2 survey, which was focused on the Plymouth Zechstein prospect and the surrounding area. The survey was fully funded by Cairn, which farmed into P2428 and four other Deltic gas licences in the south North Sea earlier this month. Deltic retains 40% interests in the licences.
"Successfully completing the acquisition of this new 3D seismic data represents another important step forward as we further progress this highly prospective licence with Cairn towards future drilling," Deltic CEO Graham Swindells said in a statement. "The results of this high quality modern 3D seismic survey are expected to significantly enhance our understanding of the multiple gas prospects on P2428 and will be key to de-risking future drilling on this licence."
