Xcite Energy Ltd. confirmed that the 9/03b-7 well in the North Sea Bentley oil field has been producing at a stabilized rate of approximately 3,200 barrels of oil per day (b/d) with no associated basic sediments or water.
Bentley crude oil collected so far in the Scott Spirit tanker is in excess of 47,000 barrels of dry oil and thus achieves another major technical objective of the flow test.
According to Xcite, early data gathered from downhole pressure and temperature responses demonstrates that the underlying aquifer support is strong and consistent, which is a good indicator for longer term productivity of the reservoir.
The pre-production flow test will be continued in order to determine the reservoir fluid behavior and to gather data to assist in the optimization of ultimate life-of-field performance.
