Det norske North Sea Wildcat Comes Up Dry
Det norske oljeselskap is to plug and abandon its wildcat well 7/11-13 on Norwegian production license 497 after the well came up dry, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported Monday.
The drill took place approximately 16 miles west of the Ula field in the southern part of the Norwegian North Sea. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Triassic Age (the Skagerrak formation).
The well is the first exploration well in PL497 and was drilled by the Maersk Guardian (350' ILC) rig, which will now proceed to production license 498 to drill wildcat well 7/8-6 for Lotos Exploration and Production Norge.
