Lidsey is due online later this week

Doriemus PLC (LON:DOR) has been buoyed by the latest update from the Lidsey field where production is due to come online later this week.

Project operator Angus Energy Plc (LON:ANGS) said in a statement that it had received a ‘pleasant surprise’ from the Lidsey oil project onshore UK, where the company now sees  a ‘strong similarity’ to the Brockham oil field.

Geochemical analysis assessed the Kimmeridge and Oxford zones at the Lidsey field to determine their commercial viability.

Angus said that the initial results indicate that the Kimmeridge and Oxford zones both have a strong similarity to the maturity of the Kimmeridge layers at Brockham field, with implications for the potential footprint of the overall Kimmeridge play.

David Lenigas, executive chairman, said: “The operator is ready to bring the Lidsey oil field in to production this week, a very significant milestone for Doriemus.

“The revelation that the initial geochemical test results from the Kimmeridge and Oxford are considered by Doriemus as providing additional upside for Lidsey’s ultimate production potential, especially considering that we have all the approvals in place for a a re-work of the Lidsey-1 well and the drilling of a new Lidsey-3 well.”

“The similarities of the Lidsey-X2 geochemical results to our Brockham Oil Field BR-X4Z well in the north of the Weald Basin shows that Lidsey has the potential to increase the footprint of the oil bearing Kimmeridge layers in the Weald.”
