Wintershall Spuds Mjosa Well

Anglo-Norwegian junior Bridge Energy reported Monday the spudding of the Mjøsa exploration well on production license 511 in the Norwegian Sea.

Operated by Wintershall, exploration well 6406/6-3 is located around six miles northeast of the Linnorm discovery in the Haltenbanken area of the Norwegian Sea. It is targeting Lower and Middle Jurassic reservoirs.

Bridge – which has a 7.5 percent stake in the license – said the estimated un-risked mean potential of Mjøsa attributed to the company is 14 million barrels of oil equivalent.

Other parties involved in the well include: Wintershall, with 25 percent; Maersk, also with 25 percent; Petoro, with 20 percent; VNG, with 12.5 percent; and Tullow, which has a 10-percent stake.

The well is being drilled by the Transocean Arctic (mid-water semisub) rig.
