- UK Oil & Gas Investments said operations would shut down until the New Year at its Broadford Bridge-1z exploration discovery and updated on recent events.

It said the Basal KL3 test has been re-run following mechanical problems. Initial natural flow of approximately 300 barrels of returned completion fluids per day (bfpd) decreased to a continuous rate of 30 to 50 bfpd during well clean-up. Gas blow and live oil traces recovered to the surface.

The company said low reservoir productivity indicates the zone may not be economically viable.
