Lundin Petroleum Drills Dry Wells near Sverdrup Find


OSLO, Feb 11 (Reuters) – Swedish oil firm Lundin Petroleum drilled two dry exploration wells near the giant Johan Sverdrup discovery, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate said on Tuesday.

The wells, about 3.2 kilometres north of a Sverdrup appraisal well, were aimed to prove new reservoirs and a connection to Sverdrup.

Lundin and Statoil each hold 40 percent of the licence while Maersk has 20 percent.
