34/11-6 S

03/02/2017 Statoil Petroleum AS, operator of production licence 193 D, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 34/11-6 S. The well was drilled from the Valemon facility, 160 km northwest of Bergen.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in the Middle Jurassic (the Brent group).

The well encountered two gas columns of about 80 and 35 metres in the Tarbert and Ness formations, respectively. There were 50 metres of sandstone with moderate to good reservoir quality in the Tarbert formation and 10 metres of sandstone with poor reservoir quality in the Ness formation.

Preliminary estimates place the size of the discovery between 3 - 8 million standard cubic metres (Sm3) of recoverable oil equivalents. The well will be completed and will start production from the Valemon facility.

Data acquisition was carried out.

This is the first exploration well in production licence 193 D.

Well 34/11-6 S was drilled to a vertical depth of 4337 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Drake formation in the Lower to Middle Jurassic.

Water depth at the site is 133 metres.

Well 34/11-6 S was drilled by the West Elara drilling facility, which is permanently stationed at the Valemon facility.
