Det Norske: Oil Presence Confirmed at Espever High (Norway)

Det norske oljeselskap ASA today announced that core samples confirmed oil presence in appraisal well 16/2-14 (PL 265), in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

The well is being drilled with Ocean Vanguard rig on the Espever High, which is part of the Johan Sverdrup field.
