Statoil to drill Catcher and Mariner exploration wells in the Spring

Statoil is preparing to drill two UKCS wells in the Spring . . . one in the Catcher area of the Central North Sea and the other in the Northern North Sea immediately to the west of the company’s Mariner field. The Catcher prospect, known as Wall, is a sizeable target which, if the pre-drill estimate is achieved, could be the herald of a standalone development. The Mariner area prospect is known as Boatswain and could add around 40million barrels of recoverable oil (median case), so enhancing the economics of the current Mariner development. Moreover, it could open up a fairway to the west and offer the potential for further reserves upgrades.
