Ardent Oil is not currently recruiting

Welcome to Ardent Oil Limited

Ardent Oil was founded in April 2013 as a privately financed oil & gas exploration company based in London and we hold exploration licences in the UK and Danish sectors of the North Sea.

We are a sub-surface company specialising in geology and geophysics for 'conventional' hydrocarbon exploration. The company has no interests in shale or 'unconventional' exploration licences.

The technical team at Ardent Oil have considerable experience in mapping our own hydrocarbon prospects from 2D and 3D seismic data, farming out blocks, and getting wells drilled. The wide experience of the team enables us to generate and mature initial prospects from less than optimum quality seismic and well data, considered by some as too difficult to work with.

Ardent Oil specialises in mapping oil and gas prospects and preparing them to be drill ready.

In April 2016 the company was awarded all four licences we applied for in the Denmark 7th Offshore Round. Ardent Oil is one of the most active exploration companies in Denmark. We have a comprehensive data set offshore Denmark and have acquired new PGS 3D Geostreamer broadband seismic on Licence 11/16 over our 'Jarnsaxa' prospect (see 'Licence Interests').

In March 2017 we were successful in being offered 11 blocks / part blocks in the UK 29th Offshore Round, supplementing our existing UK 28th Offshore Round awards. This gives us a wide and attractive acreage position in the UK Mid-North Sea High.

Ardent Oil is equipped and capable of taking the lead in joint ventures by acquiring new acreage or by farming-in to existing licences. We are currently focused on exploration in Northern Europe but we have wide international experience and are willing to consider opportunities further afield.

Ardent Oil will be exhibiting at the Prospex Fair in London in December, and we are well equipped to host data rooms and technical workshops at our London office in Borough High Street, London SE1.

UK Blocks 22/03 & 22/08b 'Snowdon' prospect

Posted on 08-03-2016 12:31:41 GMT

Ardent Oil confirms that it has awarded a contract to Ikon Science to conduct rock physics studies on its 'Snowdon' prospect located on UK Licence P2230, Central North Sea blocks 22/03 & 22/08b awarded in the 28th Round. Snowdon is an 'AVA' anomaly, mapped on 3D PGS MegaMerge seismic, which gives a similar AVA response to the nearby 'Andrew' Field.

If the rock physics results (expected in April 2016) are positive Ardent Oil will be presenting the prospect as being drill ready.

Ardent Oil has also granted an option to Horizon Energy Partners Ltd to acquire a 50% interest in the licence after the rock physics results are released by Ikon Science.
