Lundin Norway AS, operator of production licence 409, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 16/7-9. The well was drilled about 40 kilometres southeast of the Sleipner field.
The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic rocks (the Hugin formation) and in Triassic rocks (the Skagerrak formation). The well encountered both formations as expected, but is dry.
The well is the first exploration well in production licence 409, awarded in APA 2006.
The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2639 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Triassic Smith Bank formation. Water depth at the site is 78 metres.
Well 16/7-9 was drilled by the Transocean Winner drilling facility, which will now proceed to production licence 340, where Marathon Petroleum Norge AS is the operator.

Investments for the future on the Shelf
Only rarely have we seen so much oil and gas produced on the Norwegian shelf as was the case last year – and only rarely have we seen such significant investment decisions.
