Wytch Farm, the largest onshore oilfield in western Europe, produces water at ~65 °C that might yield a feasible thermal power output of ~90 MW. If an end use could be found where it might substitute for burning of natural gas, the value of this output would be ~£90, per day or ~£30 million per year.   The last million years of the geological history of Poole Harbour and the region adjacent to it are reviewed. This is facilitated by the extensive exploration for oil which has been undertaken by BP in the development of the Wytch Farm oilfield, and the exploration wells made by English China Clay in search of economically viable deposits of kaolinite.

BP's Record Breaking Horizontal Well at Wytch Farm, UK In August , BP completed a km horizontal well from an onshore base which is a world record for such a well in reservoir depth of around m. THE WYTCH FARM OILFIELD Wytch Farm oil-field is likely to have peak production of around , barrels of oil equivalent/day. The oilfield initially was found near the farm called Wytch, in Dorset, south UK in December , that’s why it carries the name Wytch Farm. It’s the largest onshore oilfield in the Europe [Ref 1]. The operator of the field was British Gas Corporation, in s it was sold to BP, in to Perenco. Exploration and appraisal Wytch Farm.

Wytch Farm is an oil field and processing facility in the Purbeck district of Dorset, is the largest onshore oil field in western Europe. The facility, taken over by Perenco inwas previously operated by is located in a coniferous forest on Wytch Heath on the southern shore of Poole Harbour, two miles ( km) north of Corfe on: Dorset.

Wytch Farm was the UK’s fifth biggest oil producing field and the highest producing onshore oil field in “The average daily oil production of the oil field during the year ending in November was more t barrels.” Future development of the UK’s largest onshore oil field.

is a platform for academics to share research papers. Abstract. The discovery of the Wytch Farm oilfield in Dorset has been described as ‘by far the most exciting thing ever to have happened in the long history of United Kingdom land exploration’. 1 The amount of oil contained has been upgraded repeatedly, especially following the discovery of the deeper, Triassic reservoir, and several years after the original well was drilled in total.

The oil discoveries at Wytch Farm are indebted to a series of geological events and circumstances, which set out the basis for hydrocarbon development, migration and entrapment. This paper intends to summarize available information in order to explain the originate of Wytch Farm Oilfield; therefore it follows the historic path of geologic events.
