Lundin Drills Duster Offshore Norway
Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum), through its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS (Lundin Norway), has completed the drilling of wildcat well 6405/12-1 on PL584. The well investigated the hydrocarbon potential of the Lindarormen prospect which is located 93 miles (150 kilometers) northwest of Kristiansund on the Norwegian coast and approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of the Ormen Lange field.
The main objective of well 6405/12-1 was to test the reservoir properties and hydrocarbon potential of the Paleocene sandstones in the Rås Basin.
No reservoir sandstones were encountered in the primary objective. Shaly sandstones with poor reservoir quality but with high gas readings were encountered in the Late Cretaceous Shetland Group. The well is now being plugged and abandoned as a dry hole.
The well was drilled to total depth of 10,843 feet (3,305 meters) below mean sea level using the drilling rig Bredford Dolphin.
Lundin Norway is the operator and has a 60 percent working interest in PL584. Bayerngas Norge is partner with a 40 percent working interest.
