Lundin Hits Oil Pay at Second Sidetrack of Avaldsnes Appraisal
Lundin Petroleum has confirmed that the Avaldsnes appraisal well (16/2-7A) found an excellent quality oil-bearing Upper Jurassic sandstone reservoir.
The sidetrack well encountered a gross reservoir column of about 82 feet (25 meters) of which 56 feet (17 meters) net was above the oil water contact. The operator conducted a coring and logging program, confirming that the reservoir has similar characteristics to the Avaldsnes discovery and appraisal wells.
Drilled by the Bredford Dolphin semisub, the well reached a total depth of 6,890 feet (2,100 meters) measured depth in a water depth of 371 feet (113 meters). Lundin operates the license with a 40% interest.
