Tullow Oil Norge Drills Dry Well in Norwegian Sea

North Energy ASA announced Tuesday that Tullow Oil Norge has come up dry with its 6507/11-11 exploration well, located in production license 591 in the Norwegian Sea.

The well was drilled to a depth of 9,514 metres by the Leiv Eiriksson (UDW semisub) and terminated in the Fangst Group. The primary objective of the well was to detect hydrocarbons in the Upper Jurassic sandstones, although the well showed a lack of reservoir development and no hydrocarbons were encountered. Exploration well 6507/11-11 will now be plugged and abandoned.

Tullow Oil Norge is the operator of license 591 and holds a 60 percent interest. Lime Petroleum Norway holds a 25 percent interest and North Energy ASA holds a 15 percent interest.
