Det norske Drills Duster at Ulvetanna
Det norske oljeselskap ASA, the operator of PL 356, is in the process of completing the drilling of well 3/4-2S on the Ulvetanna prospect.
The well was drilled approximately 12 miles (20 kilometers) north of the Trym Field, located in the southern part of the North Sea.
The objective of the drilling operation was to prove petroleum in Cretaceous reservoir rock. The estimated main reservoir, the Tor formation, was encountered in the well, but contained no hydrocarbons.
The well was drilled at an ocean depth of 167 feet (51 meters) by the drilling facility Maersk Guardian (350' ILC), now due to proceed to Production License 497 (Geite) in the North Sea, operated by Det norske, to drill the wildcat well 7/11-13.
Det norske holds a 50 percent interest in the well. The other partners are Repsol, with 40 percent ownership, and Petrolia Norway AS, with 10 percent.
