The primary target of this exploration well is a previously undrilled oil prospect near producing fields. The well will also penetrate a thick shale section which will be evaluated for potential unconventional hydrocarbons. Drilling operations are expected to last for two months.
The Skomantai-1 well is planned to be drilled to a total measured depth of 2,381 metres, and a true vertical depth of 2,042 metres. The well will target potential oil in Cambrian sandstones, which is the same as in all the producing oil fields on the license. The well will also investigate potential for unconventional hydrocarbons in the Silurian source rock shales, located above the Cambrian sandstones. The drill site is located 2 km north of the Pociai field, in western Lithuania.
