Lundin begins appraisal drilling at Edvard Grieg field

Lundin Petroleum AB  has announced that drilling of appraisal well 16/1-18 on the Edvard Grieg field located in the North Sea sector of the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS), has started.

 

The well is located on PL338 in the south-eastern part of the Edvard Grieg field. The objective for the well is to confirm the geological model at this part of the field in order to optimize drainage strategy and the placement of development wells. The well will also seek to identify potential increases to current 2P reserves volume estimates. The well is located approximately 2.4 km east of the Edvard Grieg platform location.

The planned total depth is approximately 2,300 metres below mean sea level and the well will be drilled using the semi-submersible drilling rig Island Innovator. The drilling operation is expected to take approximately 55 days.

Lundin Norway is the operator of PL338 with 50 percent interest. The partners are OMV Norge AS with 20 percent, Statoil Petroleum AS with 15 percent interest and Wintershall Norge AS with 15 percent interest.
