Exploration well on the Achmelvich prospect, a stratigraphic play with Lower Cretaceous Victory Formation and possible Upper Cretaceous Macbeth and Kyrre objectives defined by strong seismic amplitudes at approximately 6,200–6,700 ft with pinch-out onto south margin of Clair Basin and dip-closure to NW. Planned TD of 7,858 ft (7,780 ft TVDSS), indicates well drilled underlying possible Jurassic/Triassic basin fill. P&A oil discovery in undisclosed Mesozoic reservoir.
