The well was spudded November 21, 2002 in approximately 193 feet of water and is located approximately 1 mile southwest of the Nini oil accumulation in a similar geological setting.
Nini-4 was drilled as a vertical well to a depth of 1849 meters below mean sea level and reached total depth in chalk of presumed Danian age. The well confirmed the presence of oil in Paleogene sandstones. A side-track was made to the water leg in order better to establish the extent of the accumulation.
The License Group now has 6 months to evaluate the results of the well and to incorporate the new accumulation in the already initiated development of the Nini field, which has a planned production start August 2003
The well is now plugged and abandoned. Subsequently ENSCO 70 will be moved to the west in the Norwegian-Danish Basin to drill the appraisal well Cecilie-2 in the Cecilie field.
The companies in License 4/95 are DONG as operator with 40%; RWE-Dea with 30% and Denerco Oil with 30%.
