ChevronTexaco Completes Wildcat Well Offshore Norway

ChevronTexaco has completed drilling of the wildcat well 6507/1-1 in production license 261 BS, approximately 240 kilometers west of Sandnessjoen.

The purpose of the well was to evaluate the Sahara prospect of Cretaceous age. The well was drilled at a water depth of 397 meters to a total depth of 3720 meters below sea level. The well was completed in rocks of Cretaceous age.

The well, which is now plugged and abandoned did not prove hydrocarbons.
