The Burton on the Wolds-1 well was spudded on 18 October 2014 and reached a total depth of 1086 metres on 28 October 2014. The well penetrated only thin sands in the primary reservoir objective, the Rempstone Sandstone group, while the deeper secondary objective was encountered as non-reservoir rock.

Electric wireline logs have now been acquired in the well. Although weak hydrocarbon shows were observed while drilling through the Rempstone sands, interpretation of the log data indicates the thin sands to be water bearing.

The well is currently being plugged before the drilling rig is released from contract and, in due course, the well-site will be restored to its original condition as agricultural land.
