13, 13Z - Darwin exploration; a partially swept zone located at the southern end of the North West Hutton Field (oil in Brent at c. 12-13,000 ft). The 211/27e-13 main hole was abandoned as an oil discovery, with no details released, and a geological sidetrack was commenced.14 - Appraisal well on the Darwin prospect. Darwin covers a partially swept zone at the southern end of the North West Hutton Field (oil in Brent at c. 12-13,000 ft). The acquisition of new 3D seismic in 2009, with detailed static and dynamic reservoir modelling, indicated a potential remaining 500 mmbbl oil in the Brent Sandstone reservoir within the Darwin development area. Production start-up is anticipated in 2018. The 211/27a-14 well lies at the southern end of North West Hutton, within the partially swept sector of the field.
