The Winx prospect is a 3D seismic defined conventional oil prospect located in the successful Nanushuk play, with a gross mean unrisked prospective resource of 400 million barrels.

It is adjacent to the Horseshoe 1/1A discovery well drilled by the Armstrong/Repsol joint venture in 2017.

The main objective of Winx-1 is the Nanushuk Topset play, which will target the Nanushuk 4 and 5 sands. The Winx prospect was identified using the Nanuq South 3D data (as below) which covers the third-party 2017 Horseshoe discovery, plus a large portion of the ‘Western Blocks’.
