The well has been a success

Angus Energy Plc (LON:ANGS) told investors that a drill programme has now been completed at the Lidsey field, in the southern edge of the Weald basin, near Bognor Regis.

The company now plans to produce from 443 metres of net oil pay in the Great Oolite limestone reservoir.

Additionally, the company highlighted that at the end of the horizontal section of the Great Oolite reservoir analysis showed an unexpected change in the lithology of the well indicating a potential extension, continuing to the west of the original reservoir.

The well also passed through two additional potentially productive zones, the Kimmeridge and the Oxford Clay.

It encountered the Kimmeridge between 782 metres and 862 metres, with the zone comprising a mixed series of shales and limestones. Natural fractures appear to be present, though further analysis will be required. The Oxford clay was cut between 920 metres and 1,179 metres.

“I am pleased with the successful drilling of the well,” said Paul Vonk, Angus chief executive.

“We are encouraged the site offers further scope for development.

Significantly, the company has upgraded the surface facilities at Lidsey to efficiently and safely manage all future production.”

Angus shares were up 0.7% to 30.6p late on Friday afternoon.
