Last year, Premier Oil acquired a 50% operating interest in the Tolmount gasfield, which was the result of its acquisition of E.ON's UK North Sea assets.
Discovered in 2011, an appraisal drilling was conducted at the property in 2013.
The Tolmount field is estimated to contain approximately 450 billion cubic feet (gross). Premier’s partner in Tomount is Dana.
