Lundin Norway Drills Dry Well in Southern North Sea
Lundin Petroleum announced Wednesday that its wholly owned Lundin Norway subsidiary has come up dry in wildcat well 10/4-1, located in PL734 in the southern North Sea.
The Wintershall Norge operated exploration well was targeting the Zeppelin prospect and its primary objective was to prove the presence of hydrocarbons in sandstones of the middle to late Jurassic Vestland Group. Lundin revealed that the well encountered a sandy reservoir in the Vestland Group without hydrocarbon shows.
Drilled to a total vertical depth of 7,821 feet by the Borgland Dolphin (mid-water semisub), the well will now be plugged and abandoned. Lundin Norway holds a 30 percent working interest in PL734. Wintershall Norge has a 40 percent working interest and Centrica Resources holds a 30 percent working interest.
