25/9-3

16/09/2009 Norwegian Energy Company (Noreco) ASA, operator of production licence 412, has completed the drilling of exploration well 25/9-3.

The well was drilled about 15 kilometres east of the Jotun field in the central part of the North Sea. The well was dry.

The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Middle Jurassic (the Hugin formation). Reservoir rocks of the expected thickness and satisfactory reservoir quality were encountered in the Hugin formation.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2249 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Statfjord formation from the Lower Jurassic. The water depth at the site is 121 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

The well is the first exploration well in production licence 412. The licence was awarded on 16 February 2007 (APA2006). Well 25/9-3 was drilled by the drilling facility West Alpha, which will now proceed to Westcon at Ølen in Rogaland County for shipyard work.
