UK Production

The Company produces from three oilfields in the East Midlands - a 100% working interest in both the West Firsby and Crosby Warren fields and a 65% non-operated interest in Whisby. Overall daily production is stable at approximately 120 barrels of oil, all of which is transported by tanker to the refinery at Immingham in NE Lincolnshire.

The West Firsby Field, which commenced production in 1991 and is 15km north of Lincoln, is the main operating base with two wells producing ~60bopd. The Crosby Warren field started production in 1987 and is located in the grounds of the steelworks at Scunthorpe. Two production wells operate here on traditional beam pumps or 'nodding donkeys', producing ~30bopd. The Whisby well, which is just to the west of Lincoln, was drilled by Europa in early 2003 and produces ~50bopd gross via a beam pump (~30bopd net to Europa).

Production from the Ashover/Wingfield reservoir units at the Wressle field is anticipated to commence in 2017. Forecast gross production at startup is 500bopd gross (100bopd net to Europa).

Monthly oil production for Crosby Warren, West Firsby and Whisby is provided to OGA (The Oil and Gas Authority) using the UK PPRS "Petroleum Production Reporting System". Data can be viewed on the OGA website.
