Det norske Well Comes Up Dry

Anglo-Norwegian junior Bridge Energy reported Monday that the Det norske oljeselskap-operated exploration well 7/13-11 targeting the Geite prospect has come up dry. The well is on the PL497 license, which is located northwest of the Ula field in the Norwegian North Sea.

Although Triassic reservoir sandstones were encountered, no hydrocarbons were found by the well. Det norske will complete drilling operations before the well is plugged and abandoned.

Det norske holds a 35-percent interest in the well, while Bridge has a 15-percent interest. Other partners include Dana Petroleum Norway (25%), Agora Oil & Gas (15%) and Lotos Exploration and Production Norway (10%).

Bridge added in its statement that drilling is also currently taking place at the Garantiana prospect on PL554 in the Norwegian North Sea, where it has a 20-percent interest, and at the Contender exploration well on UK license P201, where it has a 4-percent interest.
