The Tamar partners did not give an estimate of the amount of gas in the reserve.
The partners in the Tamar gas field reported this morning that substantial signs of petroleum (natural gas) had been found in the drilling in Tamar South West. The partners did not give an estimate of the amount of gas in the reserve.
The report states that the operator carried out logging tests during the drilling, from which it emerges that the target stratum contains natural gas. Drilling is now being carried out to reach the planned final depth, after which the borehole will be stabilized to enable electric well logs to be performed.
The reserve, known as Tamar SW, is expected to contain 0.7 TCF (trillion cubic feet) of natural gas, which compares with 10 TCF at Tamar, with a 90% probability of a discovery.
