Premier is pleased to announce that the Catcher well, spudded on 17 May, has been drilled to the planned depth of 1543m TVDSS and encountered an oil column within good quality Cromarty age sandstones. The net oil pay is estimated to be 27m. An extensive logging programme is under way and the joint venture plans to drill stem test the current wellbore, then sidetrack to the east to test a similar amplitude-supported segment but within the stratigraphically younger Tay formation.

Premier has 35% equity in the licence.

Simon Lockett, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
"We are extremely pleased with the results of the well to date and have upgraded our gross reserves estimate for Catcher to a range of 25 to 50 mmbo. As such Catcher represents an important new discovery in the Central North Sea."
