Total have announced a significant new discovery of gas in the North Sea. 37 metres of net gas and condensate was found in a well drilled to a depth of 5,056 metres.
It is estimated that there are 250m barrels of oil equivalent of recoverable resources at Glengorm prospect.
Kevin McLachlan, senior vice president exploration at Total said, “Following the recent Glendronach discovery, west of Shetland in the UK, Glengorm is another great success for Total in the North Sea, with results at the top end of expectations and a high condensate yield in addition to the gas.
“Our strong position in the region will enable us to leverage existing infrastructures nearby and optimise the development of this discovery.
