BG Norge AS, operator of production licence 373 S, has completed the drilling of exploration well 34/3-5. The well is dry.
The well is located approximately five kilometres southeast of the Knarr field in the northern North Sea, about 120 kilometres west of Florø.
The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Early Jurassic reservoir rocks (Cook Formation). The well encountered an 82-metre thick sandstone interval in the Cook Formation, of which 47 metres are of good reservoir quality with traces of hydrocarbons.
Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out. The well is classified as dry.
This was the seventh exploration well in production licence 373 S, which was awarded in APA 2005.
Well 34/3-5 was drilled to a vertical depth of 4253 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Lower Jurassic Amundsen Formation. The water depth is 403 m. The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.
Well 34/3-5 was drilled by the Transocean Searcher semi-submersible drilling facility, which after a stay of about two months in Kristiansund will drill exploration well 2/11-11 in production license 616 in the North Sea. Edison Norge AS is the operator.
