6608/11-8

24/06/2013 Statoil Petroleum AS, operator of production licence 128, has completed drilling of appraisal well 6608/11-8. The well is dry.

The oil discovery 6608/11-2 ("Falk") was proven in 2000 in Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Åre formation).

The appraisal well was drilled about 650 metres west of the 6608/11-2 discovery well. Prior to the drilling of well 6608/11-8, the oil discovery was defined as a minor discovery with relatively poor production properties.

The objective of the well was to delineate the 6608/11-2 discovery. The well encountered reservoir rocks with reservoir quality as expected, but the well is dry.

Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out. It is too early to estimate whether the discovery is commercially interesting.

Production licence 128 was awarded in licensing round 10-B in 1986.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 1945 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Åre formation in the Lower Jurassic. Water depth at the site is 354 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 6608/11-8 was drilled by the Songa Trym drilling facility, which will now proceed to production licence 159 C to drill wildcat well 6507/3-10, where Statoil Petroleum AS is the operator.
