26/10/2009 StatoilHydro Petroleum AS, operator of production licence 079, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 30/9-24. The well was drilled about six kilometres west of the Oseberg field in the North Sea.
The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks belonging to the Statfjord formation. The well is dry. Reservoir rocks with significant thickness and medium to good reservoir quality were encountered in the Lower Jurassic.
30/9-24 is the eighth exploration well in production licence 079. The licence was awarded in the 6th licensing round in 1982. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 3 744 metres below the sea surface, and was completed in the Hegre group in the Upper Triassic. Water depth at the site is 107 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
Well 30/9-24 was drilled by the drilling facility Transocean Leader, which will now proceed to production licence 134 B / 134 C in the Norwegian Sea to drill well 6506/11-B-3H, where StatoilHydro ASA is the operator.
