Denmark: Noreco to Start Drilling at Luna in Late December

Noreco, an independent international petroleum company based in Norway, plans to begin drilling  operations at the Luna prospect , located on the 01/11 license offshore Denmark using the Maersk Resolve jack-up rig.

The Luna well will be drilled to a depth of 2,250 metres with a reservoir sandstone thickness prognosis of ca. 90m.

According to the information on Xtract Energy’s website the Maersk Resolve jack-up rig is currently drilling on contract to Maersk Oil and Gas in Denmark a short mobilisation distance from the Luna prospect location. Noreco has advised that the Maersk Resolve is expected to be released by Maersk Oil & Gas on 28th December 2011. The rig move will require a suitable weather window to undertake the short tow to the Luna location and subsequent positioning for drilling operations. The move is therefore dependent on weather conditions prevailing during the later part of December. Based on the available information it is anticipated that the Luna exploration well will spud on 30th December 2011. The Luna drilling program is expected to take approximately one month in duration.
