PA Resources discovers gas at Broder Tuck in the Danish North Sea

By Phaedra Friend Troy

PA Resources has discovered natural gas at its Broder Tuck prospect in License 12/06 offshore Denmark. 

Located about 10 kilometers south of the Gorm field in the Danish North Sea, exploration well 5504/20-4 overcame initial drilling problems to reach a total depth of 3,658 meters in layers of Lower Jurassic and Triassic age rock.

The Broder Tuck discovery well transected 17 meters of net pay in high-quality sandstones in the primary Middle Jurassic target. The well was cored, and an extensive wireline log was taken, as well as a pressure and sample suite for future evaluation. Data suggests that the reservoir fluid is gas with some condensate.

The Broder Tuck well determined that the gross hydrocarbon column spans 230 meters from the crest of the structure to the base of the column encountered on the well.

A sidetrack well will now be drilled to evaluate the potential for additional gas volumes down-dip.

PA Resources is the operator of License 12/06 with 64 percent interest. Project partners include Nordsofonden (Danish North Sea Fund) with 20 percent, Danoil Exploration with 8 percent and Spyker Energy with 8 percent.
