35/9-9

11/11/2013 GDF SUEZ E&P Norge, operator of production licence 153, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 35/9-9. The well was drilled about 8 km west of the Gjøa field in the North Sea. The well is dry.

The primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks in the Upper Jurassic (the Viking group). The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Middle Jurassic Age (the Brent group).

The well encountered reservoir rocks in the Viking and Brent group with reservoir quality as expected. The well is classified as dry, with traces of petroleum. Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.

This is the ninth exploration well in production licence 153. The licence was awarded in the 12th licensing round in 1988.

35/9-9 was drilled to a vertical depth of 3298 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in Triassic rocks. Water depth at the site is 360 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 35/9-9 was drilled by the Transocean Barents drilling facility, which will now proceed to production licence 551 in the North Sea to drill wildcat well 31/3-4, where Tullow Oil Norge AS is the operator.
