Talisman Wraps Up Drilling at North Sea Wildcat Well
Talisman, operator of production license 299, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 2/1-13 S located 13 km south of the Gyda field in the North Sea.
The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Middle Jurassic and Triassic Ages. The well encountered hydrocarbons in sandstone with poor reservoir quality from the Middle Jurassic Age. The reservoir in the Triassic section is filled with water.
The well was not formation-tested, but has provided important information about the extent and quality of the Jurassic and Triassic reservoir rocks. The well has also provided valuable information about pressure and temperature conditions in the area around the Gyda field.
The well is the first exploration well in production license 299, awarded in APA 2003. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 4317 m below the sea surface and concluded in Triassic rocks.
The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
