StatoilHydro ASA, operator of production licence 263, has concluded drilling of wildcat well 6507/11-9. The well is situated about five kilometres north-west of Midgard, which is part of the Åsgard field in the Norwegian Sea.

The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks.

The well proved gas in the Middle Jurassic, and the preliminary estimate of the size of the discovery is about 1.5 billion standard cubic metres of recoverable gas.

The well was not formation-tested, but extensive data collection and sampling were carried out.

The licensees in the production licence will consider producing the discovery in conjunction with the Åsgard field.

This well was the third exploration well in production licence 263, which was awarded in the 16th licensing round. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 3040 m below the sea surface, and was concluded in rocks from the Lower Jurassic. The water depth at the site is 299 m. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 6507/11-9 was drilled by the West Alpha drilling facility, which will now proceed to production licence 348 in the Norwegian Sea to drill wildcat wells 6407/8-4 S and A, operated by StatoilHydro ASA.
