Det Norske Drills a Duster at PL 476 in North Sea

Det norske, operator of production license 476, has finished drilling of exploration well 6507/11-10. The well, which was dry, is located approximately 5.5km east of the Midgard Field and 30km south of the Heidrun Field.

The objective of this well was to test the hydrocarbon potential of Middle- and Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks (Fangst- and Båt Groups). The well encountered slightly thinner reservoir intervals than prognosed but with good reservoir quality. The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 6507/11-10 was drilled by the drilling rig Songa Delta, which will now proceed to production license 001B in the North Sea to drill an appraisal well on the Draupne structure where Det norske oljeselskap ASA is operator.

Holders of production license 476 are Det norske oljeselskap ASA (40%, operator), Lundin Petroleum (30%), and Norwegian Energy Company ASA (Noreco) (30%).
