The well is dry, and only thin layers of cemented sandstone were found in the potential reservoir zones. This is the first well in production license 324. The license was awarded in the 18th licensing round in 2004. The well was drilled to a total depth of 4170 meters below the surface of the sea and ended in rocks from the Upper Cretaceous.
The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned. The wells were drilled by the Transocean Leader at a water depth of 1190 meters. The rig will proceed to production licensee 281 in the Norwegian Sea to drill wildcat well 6405/10-1, operated by Statoil.
The licensees in production license 324 are Eni Norge as operator with 405; BG Norge with 30% and Chevron Norge with 30%.
