Edison North Sea Well Turns Out Dry

Edison Norge has drilled a dry well near the Valhall field in the Norwegian zone of the North Sea, according to a report from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.

Well 2/11-11, the first drilled on Norwegian production license 616, is located about four miles southwest of the Valhall field and about three miles west of the Hod field.

The primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Cretaceous chalk rocks (the Hod formation). Well 2/11-11 encountered about 1,000 feet of reservoir rocks in the Hod formation with poor reservoir quality. The well has been deemed dry.

Drilled to a vertical depth of more than 10,000 feet below the sea surface, the well was terminated in the Hidra formation (Upper Cretaceous). It will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

The Transocean Searcher (mid-water semisub) rig used to drill the well will now be laid up, the NPD said.
