Statoil Comes Up Dry East of Sleipner Ost

change text size

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported Wednesday that Statoil's wildcat well 16/8-3 S on production license 360 has come up dry.

The well was drilled around 25 miles east of the Sleipner Øst field and some 40 miles south of Johan Sverdrup discovery in the central part of the North Sea. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Permian reservoir rocks, known as the Rotliegendes Group, but although the well encountered this group of rocks the reservoir quality was considerably poorer than expected.

Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out. Well 16/8-3 S is the first exploration well drilled in production license 360 and there are three older wells within the license area. The well is to be permanently plugged and abandoned.
