6306/6-2

13/11/2009 Det norske oljeselskap ASA, operator of production licence 321, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 6306/6-2.

The well is located about 80 km northwest of Kristiansund and 65 km east of the Ormen Lange field.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Viking group). The well was dry. No reservoir rocks were encountered in the Upper Jurassic.

The well is the first exploration well in production licence 321, which was awarded in the 18th licensing round in June 2004.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2039 metres below the sea surface, and it was terminated in bedrock.

The water depth is 224 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 6306/6-2 was drilled by the Aker Barents drilling facility, which will now proceed to production licence 469 in the Norwegian Sea to drill wildcat well 6407/12-2 where GDF SUEZ E&P Norge is the operator.
