9/1-1 S

23/11/2011 Premier Oil Norge AS, operator of production licence 406, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 9/1-1 S. The well is dry.

The well was drilled about 30 kilometres west of the Yme field and about 30 kilometres south of the 17/12-1 Bream oil discovery in the southern part of the North Sea.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks (Bryne formation). The well encountered the Bryne formation with better reservoir development than expected. Data was acquired and samples were taken.

This is the first exploration well in production licence 406. The licence was awarded in APA 2006. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2205 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Skagerrak formation in the Upper Triassic. The well has been permanently plugged and abandoned.

The well was drilled at a water depth of 87 metres by the Bredford Dolphin drilling facility. The drilling facility will now proceed to production licence 501 in the central North Sea to drill delineation well 16/5-2, where Lundin Norway AS is the operator.
