4Gen/GTO Announce Launch of “The DeLorean Complex” Opportunity in Central North Sea

Presenting a large oil project with robust economics at today’s prices.

London, England – October 29, 2015


4Gen Energy UK Ltd and GTO Limited are pleased to announce the official launch of a Central North Sea oil exploration opportunity with over 130 million barrels of prospective recoverable resource potential (35+ API expected) and an innovative development plan that has the potential to reduce Opex to $8.50 per barrel.


Four prospects comprising ”The DeLorean Complex” have been mapped, utilizing reprocessed 3D with a combined resource potential exceeding 130 MMbbl. The mapping was based on extensive impedance/amplitude work and audited by an engineering firm that confirmed the features to be an analogue to the adjacent redeveloped Argyll field (now known as the Alma field). 


4Gen/GTO engaged an engineering firm to design an innovative development plan that was used in the Argyll field. The significance of which reduces Opex to $8.50 per barrel.


“We are excited to be working on an innovative oil development concept that has the potential to significantly reduce operating costs and yielding positive economics at current oil prices,” said Doug Colkin, Managing Director of 4Gen Energy.

About GTO Limited: GTO Limited is a privately owned international oil and gas company, comprising of a team of six former senior E&P management.  Several of the executives gained extensive subsurface and development knowledge in the adjacent former Argyll area fields (Duncan, Innes, Alma & Galia), while working at Hamilton Bros. GTO’s technical team were involved in  the discovery, appraisal and development of numerous oil and gas fields in the North Sea.


Note the former Argyll Field has just restarted (October 2015) production through the re-development project of Alma/Galia fields by EnQuest. An initial reserve of 26mmbo is expected to be produced in this re-development.
