35/11-16 S

10/03/2014 Statoil Petroleum AS, operator of production licence 248 C, is in the process of concluding the drilling of wildcat well 35/11-16 S.

The well was drilled about 5.5 kilometres north of the Fram field in the northern North Sea, and about 130 kilometres northwest of Bergen.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (intra- Draupne formation sandstones). The well was drilled from production licence 248 C, with exploration target in licence 090 B.

The well encountered approx. 9-metres net intra-Draupne formation sandstones with relatively good reservoir properties. Only traces of petroleum were encountered. The well is classified as dry.

Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.

The well is the first exploration well in production licence 248 C, which in 2013 was carved out of production licence 248, awarded in the 1999 North Sea Awards.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 3211 metres below sea level and was terminated in the Heather formation in the Upper Jurassic.

Water depth is 367 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 35/11-16 S was drilled by the Songa Trym drilling facility, which will now proceed to the adjacent production licence 90 to drill wildcat well 35/11-17, where Statoil Petroleum AS is the operator.
