25/09/2009 Det Norske Oljeselskap ASA, operator in production licence 483 S, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 6609/10-2.
The well, which was dry, was drilled in the Helgeland basin, and is located 45 kilometres east of the Norne field and 162 kilometres west of Sandnessjøen.
The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in the reservoir rocks in the Lower Jurassic (the Båt group). The well encountered reservoir rocks with expected thickness and good reservoir quality.
The well is the first exploration well in production licence 483 S. The licence was awarded on 26 February 2008 (APA 2007).
The well was drilled to a total vertical depth of 2 499 metres below the sea surface, and was teminated in Upper Triassic rocks (”Red Beds”). The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.
Well 6609/10-2 was drilled at a water depth of 265 metres by the drilling facility Songa Delta which now will proceed to production licence 375 in the North Sea to drill wildcat well 34/4-11 where Petro-Canada Norge AS is the operator.
