Statoil Drills Dry Well in North Sea
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate announced Thursday that wildcat well 25/11-28, located in the Statoil Petroleum AS operated production license 169, has come up dry.
Drilled approximately eight miles south of the Grane field in the North Sea, the objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks and in the Permian. The dry well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
The Songa Trym (mid-water semisub), which was used to drill well 25/11-28, will be used to drill wildcat well 34/8-16 S in the North Sea’s production license 120. Well 25/11-28 is the fifteenth exploration well in production license 169.
