Exploration well on the Achmelvich prospect; stratigraphic pinch-out with main objectives defined by strong seismic amplitudes with low acoustic impedance in Upper Cretaceous Kyrre Formation (K76 and K72 sequences). Additional targets in the Victory and Rona formations. K76 objective in claystone/limestone facies, but 118 ft gross to105 ft net oil-bearing sand in K72 (early-mid Turonian) at 6,215–6,504 ft over Devonian Clair Group. K72 Sand showed moderate to poor reservoir quality with oil gravity of 24° API, viscosity 15–27 cP and GOR 128–173 scf/bbl from MDT samples being poorer than anticipated.
