23/10/2008 Press release 59/2008: StatoilHydro ASA, operator of production licence 055, has concluded the drilling of development well 31/4-A-01 AT2 on the Brage field in the North Sea.
In addition to being a development well, the well also had two exploration targets in Middle and Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks.
Oil was proven in the upper segments of the Brent group. The size of the discovery is probably 0.3 – 1 million Sm3 of recoverable oil. The well was not formation-tested, but extensive data collection and sampling were carried out.
The production licence was awarded in the 4th licensing round in 1979. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2513 metres below the sea surface, and was concluded in the Statfjord group in the Lower Jurassic.
Water depth at the site is 137 metres. The well will now be completed and brought on-stream.
The well was drilled from the Brage platform.
