The Skymoos Prospect lies within Licence P2363 located in the Outer Moray Firth and was awarded to EnCounter in October 2018.  Skymoos is located to the west of the Scott and Telford Fields, and north of the recent Equinor Burns Sandstone Verbier Discovery.


  • The Skymoos prospect covers 2 blocks (14/29a and 14/30a) through a 2018 licence awarded to EnCounter.
  • It is the first time the 2 blocks have been licensed together for several decades
  • Skymoos is on trend with several developed oil and gas discoveries in an area of prolific hydrocarbon charge
  • Analogous to the giant Buzzard Field discovery made by the EnCounter team at PanCanadian
  • A structural/stratigraphic closure within the Upper Jurassic Burns Sandstone reservoir
  • Additional exploration potential within the underlying Claymore Sandstones
  • Imaged on high-quality 3D seismic
  • Shallow low-cost drilling of normally pressured reservoir
