2/9-5 S

09/09/2014 Det norske oljeselskap ASA, operator of production licence 494, has completed drilling of wildcat well 2/9-5 S. The well is dry.

The well was drilled about 30 km northeast of the Valhall field in the southern part of the North Sea.

The primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (Tyne group). The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in Pre-Jurassic reservoir rocks.

The well encountered the primary exploration target with thin sandstones and few and thin sandstones in the secondary exploration target.

This is the first exploration well in production licence 494. The licence was awarded in APA 2008. Well 2/9-5 S was drilled to a vertical depth of 3617 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in basement rocks. Water depth is 65 metres. The well has been plugged and abandoned.

The well was drilled by the Mærsk Giant drilling facility, which will now proceed to the Yme field where Talisman Energy Norge AS is the operator.
