Dong Completes Drilling at Siri-6 in Danish North Sea

As operator for the companies in License 6/95 DONG E&P A/S has drilled the Siri-6 (5604/20-10) exploration well about 4 kilometers west of the Siri field in the Danish part of the North Sea.

Siri-6 was drilled as a vertical well and reached its total depth at 2225 meters below mean sea level in chalk of Danian age. The well encountered reservoir sandstone in the Paleocene, but no hydrocarbon discovery was made. Coring and logging was carried out for further evaluation of the well results.

The well was spudded December 21, 2008 with the jackup rig Maersk Resolute at the position 56 degrees 28'51.82" N; 4 degrees 50'51.82" E (UTM zone 31; 6,261,282.14 N; 613,444.98 E), where the water depth is 61 meters. The well is now being plugged and abandoned.

As not all the companies in license 6/95 wanted to participate in the well, Siri-6 was drilled as a sole risk operation. The table below shows the companies' shares in the Siri-6 well and in the license.

  • DONG E&P A/S 71,4286 50,0000
  • Altinex Oil Denmark A/S (Noreco) 28,5714 20,0000
  • Siri (UK) Limited 30,0000

The jackup Maersk Resolute will subsequently be moved to the Nini field.
