Centrica Finds Gas, Condensate at Fogelberg



Centrica Resources completed drilling wildcat well 6506/9-2 S on the Fogelberg prospect in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. The well proved gas/condensate. Drilled to a vertical depth of 15,538 feet (4,736 meters) by the West Alpha semisub, the well terminated in the Are formation in the Lower Jurassic. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Middle to Late Jurassic rocks, which proved gas/condensate in both the Garn and Ile formations. A preliminary estimate of the find indicates the size of the discovery at about 3 and 15 million standard cubic meters of recoverable oil equivalents. This is the first exploration well in PL 433.
