Centrica Resources has drilled two dry exploration wells, 8/10-5 S and 8/10-5 A, approx. 13 kilometres southeast of the Ula field, in the southern sector of the North Sea.

The purpose of the wells was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Ula formation) in a segment east of the 8/10-4 S oil discovery ("Butch") encountered in the same production licence in 2011.

These are the fourth and fifth exploration wells drilled in production licence 405, awarded in APA 2006.
