2/9-4

04/07/2008 Press release 37/2008: ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS, operator of production licence 273, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 2/9-4. The well, which was dry, lies 25 kilometres east of the Valhall field.

The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Upper Jurassic, as previously proven in the Hejre discovery in block 5603/28 on the Danish shelf. No mobile petroleum was found in the reservoir rocks, which were of thin thickness and  poor reservoir quality. The well is therefore classified as dry.

The well is the first exploration well in production licence 273, awarded in 2002 (the North Sea awards 2001).

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 5455 metres below sea level and terminated in Permian rocks. The sea depth is 70 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 2/9-4 was drilled by the drilling facility Mærsk Gallant. The facility will now proceed to the Ekofisk area to plug wells for ConocoPhillips.


The licensees in production licence 273:
-  DONG E&P Norge AS: 10%
-  Idemitsu Petroleum Norge AS: 10%
-  Wintershall Norge AS: 15%
-  StatoilHydro Petroleum AS: 30%
-  ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS 35%
