Kistos sinks Dutch appraisal well

London-listed Kistos announced on November 22 it had spudded the Q11-B appraisal well off the Netherlands, which it expects to use for future production.

The well was spudded by the Borr Drilling's Prospector-1 jack-up rig and is expected to take six weeks to drill and test. Kistos plans to suspend the well for future use as part of the Q11-B development, estimating the size of the accumulation at between 67 and 155bn ft3.

Kistos entered the Dutch offshore zone earlier this year, after it acquired a 60% interest from Tulip Oil in the producing Q-10A field as well as several undeveloped discoveries including Q11-B. The company kicked off its 2021 drilling campaign in July, sinking a new well at Q-10A. The campaign will also include a flow rest at the Vlieland light oil find and other work to boost recovery at Q10-A.
