Statoil Comes up Dry West of Bergen

change text size

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported Thursday that Statoil's wildcat well 30/9-25 on production license 104, some 80 miles west of Bergen and four miles south of the Oseberg Sør facility, has come up dry.

The primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Tarbert formation). The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Draupne and Heather formations).

Traces of petroleum were found in the Tarbert, Heather and Draupne formations, but the well was classified as dry.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 10,565 feet below the sea surface by the Ocean Vanguard (mid-water semisub) rig, which will now proceed to production license 272 in the northern North Sea to drill wildcat well 30/11-9 S.
