P1/J4 prospect exploration with dual reservoir objectives. A structural high, with dip-closure at both Upper Jurassic and Lower Tertiary levels. The P1 Upper Paleocene Balmoral Sandstone target at 5,431 ft (5,205 ft TVDSS) had 134 ft net oil pay and an OWC at 5,323 ft TVDSS. In Balmoral three sets of oil samples, a water sample and MDT pressure data were recovered. The J4 Upper Jurassic Piper Sandstone target at 7,805 ft (6,799 ft TVDSS) was water-wet.
