Lundin Petroleum announced Wednesday that it has spud its fifth appraisal well on the Johan Sverdrup discovery in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
The well, designated 16/2-13, is located around 1.5 miles northeast of the discovery well (16/2-6) that was found in 2010. The main objective is to determine the top reservoir, reservoir quality and thickness, as well as oil-water contact in this part of the field.
The planned total depth is 7,050 feet. The well will be drilled with the semisubmersible drilling rig Transocean Arctic (mid-water semisub) and is expected to take approximately 45 days.
Lundin Petroleum is the operator of PL501 with 40 percent interest. Its partners in the well are Statoil Petroleum (40%) and Maersk Oil Norway (20%).
