About Painted Wolf Resources
We are a team of Southern North Sea basin experts, that have assembled a portfolio of redevelopments of former gas field and undeveloped gas discoveries.
Our team of highly experienced and successful sub-surface professionals is one of the largest and most experienced working in the basin. We focus on finding and maturing commercial quantities of natural gas that, to-date, have been missed by the industry.
Painted Wolf holds three licences in the UKCS Southern North Sea gas basin – P2606 (West Viking), P2588 (Monterey) and P2581 (West London). We are using our expertise and extensive available data to identify high grade, low risk opportunities to redevelop former producing gas fields and develop gas discoveries.
Our approach is very targeted: understanding how to commercialise unexploited discoveries; revisiting previously-producing fields to identify undrained compartments; and expanding play concepts from established fields and basins into unexplored areas.
Why The Southern North Sea?
The UK Sector of the North Sea still has significant commercial potential, particularly gas in the Southern North Sea – there are opportunities as well as 50+ years of data and knowledge. There are multiple undeveloped discoveries, fields that have not been fully drained and opportunities to explore play concepts that expand from established fields into a wider footprint.
Opportunity in the Data
Since gas was first discovered in 1965, many hundreds of seismic surveys have been acquired and thousands of exploration, appraisal and development wells have been drilled. The resulting dataset vast. Our team have been working in the Southern North Sea for the majority of their career and have a strong track record of using historical data to identify opportunities missed by previous operators.
