Block 41/24 Maxwell Gasfield

Maxwell gasfield

Licence P.2034 was awarded to Arenite 50% and Europa Oil & Gas Limited 50%. Arenite acts as operator and has completed a technical assessment of the reprocessed seismic and legacy well results to determine the presence of a sizeable gasfield, known as the Maxwell gasfield which straddles adjoining blocks.

Conoco’s 1991 well 41/24-3 flowed 34 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (mmscfgd) and 1290 barrels of condensate per day (bcpd) from the Zechstein Plattendolomit (Brotherton Formation equivalent).

A 63ft gas column was encountered in excellent quality Triassic Bunter sandstone.
