- Sidewall cores in Merlin-1 confirm presence of oil previously observed in cuttings


The sidewall cores taken in the Merlin-1 well were analysed at surface prior to being sent to the laboratory for further testing. Photos of whole core and small chips from the core were taken in white and ultraviolet light to determine fluorescence. The rock chips were also exposed to solvent to observe any 'cut'. Fluorescence and cut are indicators of the presence of oil.

Fluorescence and cut were observed over several horizons, confirming the observations previously reported based on cuttings (see release dated 29th March 2021). The cores have now been sent to the laboratory for further analysis.

A schedule of expected results will be released in the coming days once timings of the various analyses are confirmed.

Managing Director, David Wall, commented:

'The sidewall core photos provide further evidence of the presence of oil over multiple horizons in the Merlin-1 well. Whilst these results are confirmatory of the cuttings data and were expected, it is reassuring to see.'
