France’s Total made a new discovery in the North Sea offshore U.K., on the Glengorm prospect located in the Central Graben.

The well was drilled to a final depth of 5,056 meters and encountered 37 meters net gas and condensate pay in a high quality Upper Jurassic reservoir with excellent properties, the company said in a statement.

Recoverable resources are estimated close to 250 million barrels of oil equivalent.

Further drilling and testing will be carried out to appraise resources and the productivity of the reservoir, Total said.

“Following the recent Glendronach discovery, West of Shetland in the U.K., 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,” said Kevin McLachlan, senior vice president exploration at Total.

The discovery is located on the P2215 license, which was previously part of the Maersk Oil portfolio, in water depth of about 80 meters, close to existing infrastructures operated by Total and offering tie-back possibilities, such as the Elgin-Franklin platform and the Culzean project, scheduled to start production this year.

Total holds a 25 percent working interest in the Glengorm discovery, alongside CNOOC Petroleum Europe, a unit of CNOOC (50 percent, operator) and Euroil, a unit of Edison E&P (25 percent).
