The well is the seventh exploration well in production licence 107.  The licence was awarded in 1985 in the 9th licensing round.  The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 3646 m below the sea surface, and was concluded in the Lower Jurassic.  Sea depth at the site was 334 m.  The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
