Statoil Makes Gas Discovery Within North Sea Valemon Field
Statoil has made a new gas discovery on the Valemon field, called Valemon West, two years after the asset came on stream.
The discovery is estimated to contain between 20 and 50 million barrels of oil equivalent, according to a Statoil statement.
“This is an important discovery for the further development of Valemon,” Gunnar Nakken, Statoil’s senior vice president for the operations west cluster, said.
"These new reserves can be put on stream immediately and will add considerable value. The discovery proves that there are still good opportunities in the North Sea, an area we know well, and its infrastructure is extensive," he added.
The well, which is situated 100 miles northwest of Bergen, was drilled to a vertical depth of 14,229 feet below sea level.
