Nexen Drills Dry Well in North Sea
Nexen has drilled a duster in wildcat well 6507/8-8 on the Ronaldo prospect in Production License 434. The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks in the Tilje and Are formations.
The well, drilled nearly 4 miles (7 kilometers) southeast of the Heidrun field, reached a vertical depth of 8,284 feet (2,525 meters), terminating in the Are formation in the Lower Jurassic. The Songa Delta semisub drilled the well in a water depth of 1,079 feet (329 meters). The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.
