The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported Friday that two wildcat wells drilled by Statoil Petroleum in the southern Norwegian Sea have turned out dry.
The wells – 6407/8-7 and 6407/8-7A – were drilled about 2.5 miles north of the Hyme field and some 85 miles north of Kristiansund. They were drilled with the primary purpose of proving petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks. Well 6407/8-7 also had a secondary target in Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks.
The wells were the first and second exploration wells drilled on Norwegian production license 348C. They were drilled by the Transocean Spitsbergen (UDW semisub) rig, which will now move on to drill wildcat well 6706/11-2 on production license 602.
