Statoil has completed the Kiwi well in Egypt’s El Dabaa License on Block 9 in the Mediterranean west of the Nile Delta.
Logging was performed and preliminary results have determined that the well is dry. Drilling results will be further evaluated and integrated into the understanding of the area before any new decisions about the acreage are made, stated the company.
The well was drilled by the Discoverer Americas drillship in a water depth of 8,858 feet (2,700 meters). Statoil operates the block, holding an 80% interest; Sonatrach International Petroleum E&P holds the remaining 20%.
