SINCE 2004

22 wells drilled, 17 as operator

Serica is the operator of the Bruce, Rhum and Keith fields in the UK Northern North Sea.  The fields produce through the Serica operated Bruce facilities, consisting of three platforms with accommodation for up to 160 people.

Serica has drilled 23 wells since its inception in 2004, 17 as operator.

Our operational track record is reinforced by deep-seated technical expertise across the Serica team, covering seismic operations through to exploration and appraisal drilling and commercial development. Serica’s management team has collectively worked in senior roles at both major and leading independent companies in the oil and gas sector.

The Company has channelled this experience into drilling wells across a wide range of offshore geographies, including the UK, Ireland, Indonesia and Vietnam. As an operator, 14 of the 17 wells drilled by Serica encountered oil or gas, six of which were of commercial significance, leading to the discovery of Columbus in the UK North Sea and Kambuna in Indonesia.

Since Serica’s direct involvement in Erskine operations, the Company has contributed to a significant improvement in the asset’s production levels.

Serica is the development operator for Columbus and developed the Kambuna field prior to selling its operated interest on favourable terms to the Company in 2008.
