Exploration well and sidetrack on Verbier, a combination down-faulted/pinch-out trap with dip-closure to N and Kimmeridgian (J62) submarine fan sand objective potentially contiguous with the J2 oil discovery (20/5a-10Y). Main hole, deviated slightly NE proved 43 ft gross massive sand at 12,287 ft TVDSS with good reservoir quality but water-wet. Sidetrack deviated up-dip to S to locate reservoir high to J2 well. Proved full oil column in significantly thicker J62 Sand from 11,804–11,920 ft TVDSS with pressures and fluid gradients indicating oil-water contact at approximately 12,200 ft TVDSS. No sampling attempted.
