BG Blue over Blabaer Sidetrack
BG Norge is nearing completion of drilling an appraisal well 34/5-1 A on the 34/5-1 S Blabaer oil discovery, but the well is dry. Drilled to a vertical depth of 3,707 meters, the well terminated in the Burton formation from the early Jurassic age. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in a structure adjacent to the discovery well. A reservoir was encountered in the Cook formation with reservoir rocks and quality as expected, but the secondary target, the Stratfjord formation, was dry. Data was gathered and the results will be integrated with the discovery well's data before a final decision is made about a future delineation well. The Blabaer prospect is located on Blocks 34/2 and 34/5 in Production License 374 in waters measuring 1,270 feet (387 meters) in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
