Wintershall Makes Small North Sea Discovery
Wintershall Norge AS, operator of production license 248, has made a small oil discovery near the Vega field in the North Sea.
Well 35/8-6 A encountered a 10-foot oil column in the Heather formation with poor reservoir quality. Preliminary estimates concerning the size of the discovery range between 0.2 and 1 million standard cubic metres of recoverable oil. The well has now been permanently plugged and abandoned.
Well 35/8-6 A was drilled by Borgland Dolphin (mid-water semisub), which is now heading to production license 248 F in the North Sea to drill wildcat well 35/11-19 S, which is operated by Wintershall Norge AS.
