6608/10-14 S

07/04/2010 Statoil Petroleum AS, operator of production licence 128, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 6608/10-14 S. The well proved oil and gas. The discovery was made about 15 kilometres northeast of the Norne field.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Middle and Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks. The well proved oil in the Ile, Tofte and Åre formations from the Middle to Early Jurassic Ages, with good reservoir quality as expected. Gas was also encountered in the Melke formation from the Middle Jurassic Age. 

The preliminary size of the discovery has been estimated at between six and ten million standard cubic metres (Sm3) of recoverable oil and about one to three billion Sm3 of recoverable gas. The well was not formation tested, but extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out. The licensees in production licence 128 are considering producing the discovery via the Norne field.

The well was drilled to a total vertical depth of 2749 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Åre formation in the Lower Jurassic.

The water depth is 352 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 6608/10-14 S was drilled by the Ocean Vanguard drilling facility. The facility has now moved to production licence 473 in the Norwegian Sea, where Statoil Petroleum AS is the operator, to drill wildcat well 6407/2-6.
