Upon the profitable drilling of Byron’s SM71 F4 properly which logged hydrocarbons within the D5 Upper Sand, Byron proposed the drilling of the SM71 growth properly to its accomplice, Otto Energy. The proposed properly is designed to check and consider the D5 Sand in the identical location offered to Otto in August 2019. Byron and Otto will every maintain a 50% working curiosity (‘WI’) and a 40.625 % internet income curiosity (‘NRI’) within the SM71 F5 properly.
Otto has elected to take part within the SM71 F5 properly.
Due to spatial constraints on the SM71 F Platform, a number of issues had been addressed with a view to finalize the positioning of the Enterprise 264 drilling rig with a view to make a ultimate drill choice. Those issues have now been resolved and the undertaking will transfer ahead. The properly shall be drilled in direct continuation of the completion operations on the SM71 F4 and is predicted to start round 1 March 2020.

The SM71 F5 has a deliberate whole depth of eight,788 toes measured depth (7,768 toes true vertical depth) and is predicted to take 25 days to drill and consider. If the properly is profitable, completion operations would observe instantly and take one other 14 days.
Further progress studies shall be offered after drilling operations start.
Byron, by way of its wholly owned subsidiary Byron Energy Inc., is the operator of SM71 and at the moment has a 50% WI and a 40.625% NRI in SM71. The Otto group holds the remaining curiosity in SM71.
Otto elected to not take part within the SM71 F4 properly, giving Byron a 100% WI with an 81.25% NRI within the SM71 F4 properly.
