Swedish independent oil and gas explorer Lundin Petroleum announced Thursday that drilling of exploration well 6201/11-3 in PL519, targeting the Albert prospect, has been temporarily suspended until August.
The Bredford Dolphin (DW semisub) drilling rig is moving to a Norwegian yard to complete its five-year renewal survey before returning to complete the Albert exploration well. Lundin Petroleum originally anticipated that the well would be completed prior to the date of the renewal survey but due to delays in drilling this was not possible.
The main objective of well 6201/11-3 is to test Cretaceous and Triassic age sandstones of a multiple target structure.
The well has been temporarily suspended above the primary targets at 2,120 meters (6955 feet) where the 13 3/8-inch casing has been set. The planned total depth is 3,150 meters (10,335 feet).
Lundin Petroleum is the operator of PL519 with a 40-percent interest. Its partners are Bayerngas Norge, Norwegian Energy Company and Spring Energy Norway, each with a 20-percent interest.
