7122/7-6

21/12/2012 Eni Norge AS, operator of production licence 229, has completed drilling of appraisal well 7122/7-6 on the Goliat field.

The objective of the well was to investigate the reservoir properties in the oil-bearing zones that are included in the approved field development plan. The well was drilled in an as of yet undrilled fault block and encountered petroleum as expected in Upper to Middle Triassic reservoir rocks (the Realgrunn sub-group and the Ingøydjup sub-group).

Extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out. The data acquisition will provide valuable information for the further well planning on the Goliat field, which is being developed.

This is the seventh exploration well in production licence 229. The licence was awarded in the Barents Sea Project in 1997.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 1992 metres below the sea surface and terminated in the Klappmyss formation in the Early Triassic. The water depth is 382 metres. The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 7122/7-6 was drilled by the Scarabeo 8 drilling facility, which will now proceed to drill the production wells on the Goliat field.
