Lundin Flows Gas at Alta Appraisal Well Offshore Norway

Lundin Norway AS, operator of production license 609, has flowed gas at the 7220/11-3 AR appraisal well on the Alta oil and gas discovery, offshore Norway.

The objective of well 7220/11-3 AR was to continue exploring the reservoir properties in the Ørn and Falk Formations under the oil-water contact in the discovery. The well encountered several zones with very good reservoir properties. A production test was carried out in the gas zone in the Lower Triassic, with a production rate of 21 million cubic feet of gas per flow day through a 64/64 inch nozzle opening.

The 7220/11-3 AR deepening was drilled to a measured depth of 8,448 feet and a vertical depth of 7,837 feet below the sea surface, and was terminated in Carboniferous sandstone in the Gipsdalen Group.
