BG Group Drills Dry Well in the North Sea

BG Group subsidiary BG Norge has come up dry with its 34/3-5 exploration well on production license 373S in the North Sea, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported Friday.

The objective of the well, which is located three miles southeast of the Knarr field, was to prove petroleum in Early Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Cook Formation). It found a gross Cook Formation interval of approximately 270 feet, of which 154 feet were of good reservoir quality with traces of residual hydrocarbons interpreted.

However, after extensive data acquisition and sampling were carried out the well was classified as dry. It will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
