The Sofie oil discovery was made with the Sofie-1 well in 2003. The deposit is situated in sandstone of Paleogene age.
Drilling of Sofie-2 commenced on December 19th in 58 meters of water.
Sofie-2 was drilled as a vertical well approximately 2 kilometers east of Sofie-1 and reached total depth at 1951 meters below mean sea level in chalk of Danian age. The well proved the presence of oil in the sandstone reservoir.
Subsequently a side-track, Sofie-2A, was carried out in order to appraise the reservoir further towards northwest.
Sofie-2/2A has shown that the oil deposit is more complicated than expected. The results will now be further evaluated.
The Sofie-2/2A well will be plugged and abandoned. The ENSCO 70 rig is subsequently going to drill the Sissel-1 exploration well approximately 6 kilometers west of Sofie-2 in the same license area.
The companies in License 6/95 are DONG as operator with 50%; Paladin Oil with 30% and Denerco Oil with the remaining 20%.
