Petrolia Norway reported Tuesday that the Tastaveden well currently being drilled by Statoil on Norwegian production license 628 has failed to find hydrocarbons in the Hugin Formation sandstones it was targeting.
Petrolia said that Well 25/9-4 found Hugin Formation sandstones of good reservoir quality but these turned out to be water wet. The well was terminated some 98 feet into the Sleipner Formation at 7,865 feet subsea.
The Tastaveden well was drilled by the Ocean Vanguard (mid-water semisub) rig. Statoil is the operator of the PL 628 license with a 50-percent interest, while Petrolia holds a 10-percent stake. Petoro and Repsol Exploration Norge each hold 20 percent.
