i3 submits Liberator development plan

Written by  OE Staff Monday, 02 October 2017 02:43

i3 Energy has submitted its field development plan and environmental statement (ES) for the development of the Liberator field in the UK North Sea. 

i3 plans to tie the field into the Blake field host infrastructure, then through the Bleo Holm floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, operated by Repsol. The firm is targeting 7300 b/d production. 

John Woods, i3’s chief developments officer, said: “With the FDP review process, we continue to make excellent progress through the planning and approvals required to allow us to execute the field development during 2018.”

Located in License P.1987, Block 13/23d, Liberator was discovered by Dana Petroleum in November 2013 with well 13/23d-8.

It is immediately adjacent to the Blake field and only 2 km from Blake’s producing drill centre.

Liberator was found to have 24-feet of net pay at the top of a 316-foot thick high-quality Lower Cretaceous Captain Sands reservoir with super-high permeability greater than 2 Darcy’s.

The reservoir was fully logged with extensive fluid sampling and PVT analysis proving the 30.3° API, 1.9 cP discovery shared similar fluid properties as the immediately adjacent Blake field.
