Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited has reached an agreement with Atlantic Petroleum to farmout a 20% stake in P1100, Blocks 20/4a and 20/9a containing the Polecat discovery in return for carrying a share of the cost of an appraisal well. The initial Polecat discovery was drilled in 2005 when oil was discovered in the 20/4a-8 well and was successfully appraised by the 20/4a-9 well in 2010. The reservoir is Upper Jurassic Buzzard equivalent sandstones. The blocks lie to the east and south east of Atlantic Petroleum's Ettrick & Blackbird producing assets which are operated by Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited.
