Following Glendronach in September 2018, Total announces a new significant discovery in the North Sea offshore UK, on the Glengorm prospect located in the Central Graben.

The well was drilled to a final depth of 5056 m and encountered 37 m net gas and condensate pay in a high quality Upper Jurassic reservoir with excellent properties.

Recoverable resources are estimated close to 250 million boe. Further drilling and testing will be carried out to appraise resources and the productivity of the reservoir.

“Following the recent Glendronach discovery, West of Shetland in the UK, Glengorm is another great success for Total in the North Sea, with results at the top end of expectations and a high condensate yield in addition to the gas,” stated Kevin McLachlan, Senior Vice President Exploration at Total. “Our strong position in the region will enable us to leverage existing infrastructures nearby and optimise the development of this discovery. Glengorm is an achievement that demonstrates our capacity to create value in a mature environment thanks to our in-depth understanding of the basin.”

Total holds a 25% working interest in the Glengorm discovery, alongside CNOOC Petroleum Europe Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited (50%, operator) and Euroil, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Edison E&P SpA (25%).
