Repsol Comes Up Dry in Norwegian Sea Wildcat Well

Repsol Norge AS, operator of production license 705, has come up dry in the drilling of wildcat well 6705/7-1, located in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Cretaceous reservoir rocks (Nise formation). Well 6705/7-1 encountered two reservoir intervals with a total thickness of about 650 feet of sandstone in the Nise formation with good to moderate reservoir quality.

The reservoir rocks only contained weak traces of gas, however, and the well was classified as dry.

This is the first exploration well in production license 705. The licence was awarded in the 22nd licensing round in 2013.
