RWE DEA Comes Up Dry with Norwegian Sea Well

change text size

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported Monday that wildcat well 6608/2-1 S, drilled by RWE DEA Norge some 40 miles east of the Aasta Hansteen field in the Norwegian Sea has come up dry.

 
The well's primary exploration goal was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Fangst group), while the secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Late Cretaceous (the Shetland group) and the Early Jurassic (the Båt group).
 
The well did not reach the Fangst and Båt groups and no reservoir development was proven in the Shetland group. The well will now be classified as dry. Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out, the NPD added.
 
The well was the first exploration well to be drilled in production license 330, which was awarded in the 18th licensing round in 2004.
