3/7-9 S

30/04/2013 Dong E&P Norge AS, operator of production licence 289, is about to complete drilling of wildcat well 3/7-9 S. The well was drilled about 5 kilometres northwest of the Trym field in the southern part of the North Sea.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Sandnes and Bryne formations).

The well encountered reservoir rocks with reservoir quality as expected. Extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out. The well is dry.

3/7-9 S is the second exploration well in production licence 289. The licence was awarded in the North Sea Awards 2002.  The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 3631 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Skagerrak formation in the Triassic. The water depth is 63 metres. The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 3/7-9 S was drilled by the Mærsk Giant drilling facility which will now proceed to production licence 299 in the North Sea to drill wildcat well 2/1-16 S where Talisman Energy Norge AS is the operator.
