Originally designated an exploration well on the Whitehaven horst block prospect, with an Ormskirk Sandstone objective, south of the Rhyl Field. The well encountered a 188 ft gas column, with 105 ft of net pay, from 4,747 ft (4,491 ft TVDSS) to a gas-water contact at 4,935 ft (4,674 ft TVDSS) and an average porosity of 8.9%. On DST well flowed at a maximum rate of 31.48 mmcfgpd. Location of the contact, formation pressures and gas composition (with 37% CO2 and 7.2% N2) confirm communication with Rhyl. Well was re-designated as an appraisal and suspended awaiting tie-back to the Rhyl Field.
