HOUSTON, July 19
– A group led by a unit of PA Resources AB, Stockholm, has made a gas discovery at the Broder Tuck 5504/20-4 exploratory well in the Danish North Sea 10 km south of Gorm field.

PA Resources UK Ltd. said the well on License 12/06 went to 3,658 m TVD below mean sea level in Lower Jurassic-Triassic, established a gross hydrocarbon column of at least 230 m, and cut 17 m of net pay in high-quality Middle Jurassic sandstones.

The reservoir was cored, and an extensive wireline log, pressure, and sample suite was taken for future evaluation, with wellsite sample analysis showing the reservoir fluid to be gas with some condensate. A sidetrack will be drilled to assess the potential for additional gas volumes downdip.

License interests are PA Resources UK 64%, Nordsofonden (Danish North Sea Fund) 20%, Danoil Exploration AS 8%, and Spyker Energy APS 8%.
