Lundin Completes Johan Sverdrup Appraisal Well
Sweden's Lundin Petroleum reported Monday that it has completed the drilling of appraisal well 16/2-16 on the Johan Sverdrup discovery in production license 501 of the Norwegian North Sea.
The well – drilled on the northeastern flank of the discovery around 2 miles from the discovery well (16/2-6) – met its main objectives of establishing the depth to the top reservoir, as well as the quality of the reservoir, the oil-water contact depth and the aquifer quality. The top of the reservoir was located at 6,312 feet below mean sea level and the oil-water contact at 6,315 feet below mean sea level. A total of 49 feet of sand was found in a 197-foot Jurassic sequence.
The well will now be sidetracked approximately 3,280 feet to the west in order to improve the understanding of the lateral variations in reservoir qualitites and the relation between the oil-water contact in the 16/2-10, 16/2-16 and 16/2-13A wells.
Wells 16/2-16 and 16/2-16A are being drilled with the Transocean Winner (DW semisub) rig.
Lundin Norway is the operator of PL501, with a 40-percent interest. Partners Statoil and Maersk Oil Norway hold 40 percent and 20 percent respectively.
