UK: Ithaca Suspends Jacky Field Well On Poor Result


Ithaca Energy Inc. announces that the J03 well on the Jacky field (“the well”) has been suspended having encountered a smaller than anticipated oil column in the Beatrice ‘A’ Sand reservoir.

Given the result of the well, technical work is ongoing to determine whether to re-enter the well and complete it as a water injector to maximise oil recovery from the Jacky field.

Meanwhile, the drilling unit for the J03 well, Northern Enhancer, currently located over the Jacky platform, will commence a workover operation to replace downhole pumps in the J01 production well. This operation is estimated to last approximately 15 days.
