‘Burnt Island’ prospect is a fault-bound Middle Jurassic Hugin Formation structural closure located on the Andrew Ridge between the South Viking Graben and Fisher Bank Basin.

The block is adjacent to the UK/Norwegian median line and numerous fields and established infrastructure, in particular the Kinnoull field which BP brought on stream in December 2014.  Early seismic impedance work on new 3D Geostreamer seismic data indicates similar characteristics to that observed at the adjacent Norwegian Grevlin discovery.

There are multiple proven play types in the area. The primary prospectivity on block 16/24c comprises Jurassic tilted fault blocks with associated high quality Middle Jurassic Hugin Formation shoreface reservoir sands. Both local and more distal mature kitchen areas have been identified and de-risked through basin modelling. ‘Burnt Island’ has  gross P50 recoverable resources of 39 MMboe.

An exploration well is planned to target the Middle Jurassic Hugin Formation sands of the ‘Burnt Island’ prospect to a depth of 3,250m TVDSS.
