15/9-24

07/06/2010 Det norske oljeselskap ASA, operator of production licence 408, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 15/9-24. The well, which was dry, was drilled southwest of the Sleipner Øst field in the central  part of the North Sea.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Middle to Lower Paleocene reservoir rocks (the Heimdal and Ty formations). The well did not encounter the Heimdal and Ty formations with reservoir development.

The well is the second exploration well in production licence 408. The licence was awarded in APA 2006. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2400 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Tor formation in Upper Cretaceous. Water depth at the site is  81 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 15/9-24 was drilled by the Bredford Dolphin drilling facility, which will now proceed to production licence 435 in the Norwegian Sea to drill  wildcat well 6507/7-14 S. RWE Dea Norge AS is the operator of production licence 435.
