About Painted Wolf Resources

We are a team of Southern North Sea basin experts, building a portfolio of drill ready gas projects including exploration wells, appraisal wells and early stage field developments.

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.

Our Assets

Painted Wolf holds seven licences in the UK sector of the North Sea. Six in the core focus area, the Southern North Sea gas basin, and the seventh a high potential licence in the Central North Sea. We are using our expertise and extensive available data to identify high grade, low risk appraisal and development opportunities.

Our Approach

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 data arising from this activity is vast, and there are basin experts who have been working in the Southern North Sea for the majority of their career.
