Asha East Well Comes up Dry

Wintershall's Asha East well on Norwegian production license 457 has come up dry, according to the German's firm's partner in the license.

Anglo-Norwegian junior explorer Bridge Energy, which has a 20-percent interest in PL457, said that Asha East was drilled to its total depth but after a core section was retrieved from the Jurassic layer there is no sign of movable hydrocarbons in the well. Consequently, no drill stem test will be carried out and the well will now be plugged and abandoned.

Wintershall is the operator of PL457 with a 40-percent interest, while VNG and E.ON each hold a 20-percent stake.
