25/08/2005 Press Release no. 16/2005: Hydro has discovered oil and gas in well 30/9-J-13 H, drilled southeast of the Oseberg field on the J central prospect. The well has proved oil and gas deposits in early and mid Jurassic rocks.
Well 30/9-J-13 H was drilled using the rig "Bideford Dolphin" at a water depth of 103 meter, to a total depth of 2550 meter below the sea surface.
The well proved hydrocarbons in the J central prospect, which is being produced as a satellite of the Oseberg Sør platform. The hydrocarbons have been proven in layers that correspond to and are deeper than the reservoir that is being produced elsewhere on the J structure. The licensees are planning to convert the well into a production well which can be connected to the existing subsea template on the J structure and come on stream from the third quarter of 2005. This will increase the production from Oseberg Sør.
