3/7-10 S

03/09/2015 Premier Oil Norge AS, operator of production licence 539, is in the process of completing the drilling of wildcat well 3/7-10 S.

The well has been drilled about 45 kilometres northeast of the Valhall field in the southern section of the North Sea and 300 kilometres southwest of Stavanger.

The purpose with the well was to prove petroleum in the Upper and Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Ula and Bryne formations). The well did not encounter the Ula formation. The Bryne formation was encountered with a thickness of about 110 metres, of which 45 metres with moderate reservoir quality. The well is dry.

Data acquisition and sampling were carried out. The well is the first exploration well in production licence 539, awarded in APA 2009.

Well 3/7-10 S was drilled to a measured and vertical depth of 3511 and 3464 metres below sea level, respectively, and was terminated in the Skagerrak formation in the Upper Triassic.

The water depth at the site is 68.5 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

The well was drilled by the drilling facility Mærsk Guardian,  which now will proceed to Fredrikshavn to be laid up.
