Statoil Drills Duster in N. Sea
Statoil has completed drilling of wildcat well 15/8-2 in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. The well is dry.
The objective of the well was to determine petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks, specifically, the Hugin and Sleipner formations. The well encountered both formations -- while the reservoir development in the Hugin formation was better than expected, the Sleipner formation was as expected. The operator acquired data and samples and the well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.
Drilled by the COSL Pioneer semisub, the well reached a vertical depth of 15,194 feet (4,631 meters) and terminated in the Sleipner formation in the Middle Jurassic. The water depth of the site is 390 feet (119 meters). Statoil operates the block with 100% interest.SubseaIQ provides focused, in-depth coverage of offshore field development activities around the world, with daily updates on hundreds of offshore fields and facilities.
