Horse Hill-1 Oil Discovery, Weald Basin, UK

Flow Test Operations Commence

 

Evocutis (AIM: EVO, ISDX: EVO) announces that it has been informed by Horse Hill Developments Limited ("HHDL") that operations have now commenced at the Horse Hill site to conduct the extended flow test over three separate zones in the Horse Hill-1 ("HH-1") oil discovery well.

As previously reported, the extended flow test is designed to test both the oil bearing Upper Portland sandstone and two Kimmeridge limestones beneath the Portland.

The HH-1 well, drilled at the end of 2014, is located within onshore exploration Licence PEDL137, on the northern side of the Weald Basin near Gatwick Airport, in which Evocutis owns a 1.3% interest.

Interest in Horse Hill

The HH-1 well is located within onshore exploration Licence PEDL137, on the northern side of the Weald Basin near Gatwick Airport. Evocutis owns a 2% direct interest in HHDL.

Glossary

 

discovery

a discovery is a petroleum accumulation for which one or several exploratory wells have established through testing, sampling and/or logging the existence of a significant quantity of potentially moveable hydrocarbons

extended flow test

a flow test, as per the permission granted by the Oil and Gas Authority, with an aggregate flow period duration over all zones of greater than 96 hours and up to 90 days maximum.

flow test

a flow test or well test involves testing a well by flowing hydrocarbons to surface, typically through a test separator. Key measured parameters are oil and gas flow rates, downhole pressure and surface pressure. The overall objective is to identify the well's capacity to produce hydrocarbons at a commercial flow rate

limestone

a sedimentary rock predominantly composed of calcite (a crystalline mineral form of calcium carbonate) of organic, chemical or detrital origin. Minor amounts of dolomite, chert and clay are common in limestones. Chalk is a form of fine-grained limestone

sandstone

a clastic sedimentary rock whose grains are predominantly sand-sized. The term is commonly used to imply consolidated sand or a rock made of predominantly quartz sand.
