Terrain successfully completes gravity survey
Terrain is pleased to report that the acquisition phase of the gravity survey in the Starnberger See licence has been successfully completed. The data will now be processed and integrated into the technical interpretation of the area over the next few months.
Terrain beendet Gravimetriemessungen erfolgreich
Terrain Energy hat die Gravimetriemessungen im Erlaubnisfeld Starnberger See unter Beteiligung aller relevanten Landratsämter und Gemeinden erfolgreich und ohne Zwischenfälle abgeschlossen. Die gesammelten Daten werden nun im Laufe der kommenden Monate hinweg analysiert und interpretiert.
|May / Mai 2015
This May Terrain Energy started a gravity survey in the Starnberger See licence area.
The programme involves measuring the strength of the gravity field at a series of points in the area and is being conducted by Prof Kord Ernstson. All of the equipment fits inside a hand portable box and each measurement only takes a few minutes. There is no ground disturbance whatsoever. Depending on various influence factors the data acquisition phase should be completed by the end of May and the processed results will assist in interpreting the sub-surface structure.
Gravimetriemessungen im Erlaubnisfeld Starnberger See
Terrain Energy hat Anfang des Monats Mai 2015 mit den bereits angekündigten Gravimetriemessungen im Erlaubnisfeld "Starnberger See" begonnen. Im Rahmen dieses Programms unter Leitung von Prof. Dr. Kord Ernstson wird das gravimetrische Erdfeld an einer Reihe von Punkten vermessen. Das hierbei zum Einsatz kommende Gerät hat die Größe eines Handgepäckstücks und ist in der Lage innerhalb weniger Minuten Messdaten zu erheben. Es kommt dabei zu keinerlei Flurschäden oder Beeinträchtigung der Bevölkerung. Die Datenerhebung wird in Abhängigkeit von diversen Einflussfaktoren ca. bis Ende Mai abgeschlossen sein. Die hierbei gewonnenen Daten sollen helfen ein besseres Bild der geologischen Tiefenstrukturen zu zeichnen.
The Burton on the Wolds-1 well was spudded on 18 October 2014 and reached a total depth of 1086 metres on 28 October 2014. The well penetrated only thin sands in the primary reservoir objective, the Rempstone Sandstone group, while the deeper secondary objective was encountered as non-reservoir rock.
Electric wireline logs have now been acquired in the well. Although weak hydrocarbon shows were observed while drilling through the Rempstone sands, interpretation of the log data indicates the thin sands to be water bearing.
The well is currently being plugged before the drilling rig is released from contract and, in due course, the well-site will be restored to its original condition as agricultural land.
Terrain, along with its partners, is awarded the P2123 licence just off the coast of Northern Ireland in the 27th Offshore Licencing Round.
An area offshore Larne-Lough Neagh Basin, the P2123 licence, was offered by DECC to the joint venture partners as part of the 27th Seaward Licensing Round. Formal award of the licence is expected within the next two months. The joint venture has identified prospective resources of 150 mmboe within the new licence area.
Following its acquisition by Cairn Energy plc, Nautical has decided to withdraw from the PL1/10 licence. A farmout agreement with Nautical has been terminated and Terrain will acquire 10% of their 20% interest, subject to DETI approval.
Licence PL1/10, Larne Lough Neagh Update.
We are pleased to announce that permission has now been confirmed under Permitted Development for the proposed PL1/10 exploration well. It permits a window for activities on site between September and March. Plans are progressing towards commencement of site construction on 1 September 2014, so that drilling may also commence in November 2014. In order to drill the well, the operator will consult with a number of stakeholders, including Northern Ireland Environment Agency and Northern Ireland Health and Safety Executive, and obtain consent to drill from the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (“DETI”). An agreement for a lease over the land for the wellsite will also need to completed.
The well will target prospective resources estimated by the joint venture at 40 mmboe (4mmboe net to Terrain). Prospective resources of over 450 mmboe have been estimated by the joint venture within the licence area.
Terrain Energy Acquires Two Exploration Licences In Germany.
On the 12th December 2013 Terrain Energy received notification from the Bavarian Ministry for the Economy, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology that it had been granted 100% of the Bruckmühl and Starnberger See oil and gas exploration licences which are located to the south and southwest of Munich in the Molasse Basin.
Exploration and production in the area occurred primarily in the 1960s through the 1980s. A number of gas and oil fields were discovered in sandstones of Lower Cretaceous to Tertiary age and there are potentially deeper and shallower reservoirs. Companies pulled out of the area following the oil price crash of 1986 and with the difficulty and expense of accessing seismic, well and production data the area has remained relatively under-explored.
The licences cover an interesting area from a technical standpoint in that there appears to be pervasive hydrocarbon charge, multiple good quality proven reservoirs and relatively simple structural traps.
Terrain is planning a 2D seismic acquisition programme over the two licences in 2014 with the possibility of drilling an exploration well in 2015 should the seismic identify suitable prospects.
Terrain Energy is an oil and gas exploration and production company that owns interests in nine licences onshore in the UK and Germany. Terrain is wholly owned by funds under the management or advice of Calculus Capital.
