Lundin drills duster in Storm well

Lundin Norway AS, operator of production licence 555, has completed drilling of wildcat well 33/2-1, located in the North Sea. The well is dry. 

The well investigated the hydrocarbon potential of the Storm prospect, which is located 200 km northwest of Florø on the Norwegian west coast and 65 km northwest of the Snorre field in the northern North Sea. Lundin started drilling of exploration well 33/2-1 in October.

The primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in Jurassic reservoir rocks (“Intra-Draupne sandstone”). The secondary exploration target was proving petroleum in Eocene sandstone.

The primary and secondary exploration targets were not present. The well encountered 2-3 metres of sand in the Cromer Knoll group of late Cretaceous Age with poor reservoir properties, but with traces of petroleum.

According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD), the well was not formation-tested, but extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.

This is the first exploration well in production licence 555 , which was awarded in APA 2009.

Well 33/2-1 was drilled to a vertical depth of 4433 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Statfjord group in the Early Jurassic.

Water depth at the site is 381 metres. The NPD says that the well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.

The well was drilled by the Transocean Arctic semi-submersible drilling rig, which will now drill wildcat well 6406/2-8, operated by Wintershall Norge AS.
