About Painted Wolf Resources

We are a team of Southern North Sea basin experts with an emphasis on the redevelopment of former gas field and the commercialisation of 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.

Our Assets

Painted Wolf has held multiple licences in the UKCS Southern North Sea gas basin as well as the Central North Sea.  We made multiple applications in the 33rd Licensing Round, 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

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.
