8/10-6 S

23/07/2014 Centrica Resources Norge AS, operator of production licence 405, has completed drilling of wildcat well 8/10-6 S. The well is dry.  

The well was drilled 13 kilometres southeast of the Ula field in the southeastern part of the North Sea.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (Ula formation) in a new segment southwest of the 8/10-4 S oil discovery proven in 2011.

The well encountered 55 metres of sandstone in the Ula formation with good reservoir quality, but hydrocarbons were not proven. Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.

The well is the seventh exploration well in production licence 405. The licence was awarded in APA 2006.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 1945 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Zechstein group in the Permian. Water depth is 66 metres. The well is now permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 8/10-6 S was drilled by the Mærsk Giant drilling facility, which will now proceed to production licence 494 in the southern North Sea to drill wildcat well 2/9-5 S where Det norske oljeselskap ASA is the operator.
