Centrica hits dry well in North Sea

Centrica Resources Norway AS, operator of production license 405, has completed drilling of wildcat well 8/10-6 S. The well is dry.

The well was drilled 13 km southwest of the Ula field in the southeastern part of the North Sea.

The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (Ula) in a new segment southwest of oil found 8/10-4 S detected in 2011.

The well encountered 55 meters sandstones in the Ula formation with good reservoir quality, but hydrocarbons were not found. Data collection and sampling has been done.
