Kvitvola duster for Det norske

Det norske oljeselskap ASA, as operator of production license 553, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 34/7-36 S T2, offshore Norway.

The well was drilled on the Kvitvola prospect about 5 km west of the Visund Field by the Borgland Dolphin semi-submersible drilling rig. The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in upper Jurassic, Draupne sandstones.

A secondary target was the underlying Brent Group. The well encountered no reservoir in the Draupne Formation and thus no hydrocarbons were proven. The secondary target was also dry. 34/7-36 S T2 is the first exploration well in production license 553, awarded in the APA 2009.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 3,639 meters below sea level (3,690 meters MDRKB). The water depth is 304 meters. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Det norske oljeselskap ASA is the operator of the license with a 40 percent working interest. Partners are Svenska Petroleum with 35 percent and Bayerngas with 25 percent working interest.
