Lundin makes minor gas discovery in Barents Sea

Lundin Norway has completed the drilling of exploration well 7219/12-2 on the Hufsa prospect in PL533 in the southern Barents Sea. A non-commercial gas discovery was made in the main well while the sidetrack was dry.

The wells were drilled about 20 kilometers west of the discovery well 7220/11-1 (Alta) and about 50 kilometers southwest of the discovery well 7220/8-1 Johan Castberg. The main objective of the well was to prove oil in Jurassic and Triassic sandstone reservoirs, Lundin said on Wednesday.

The main well 7219/12-2S encountered a gross 22 meters gas column while no hydrocarbons were encountered in the sidetrack 7219/12-2A. The oil company got a drilling permit to drill the well back in July.

Extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out, including coring, logging and sampling of gas from the wireline tools. The wells will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

The well was drilled with the semi-submersible drilling rig Leiv Eiriksson for which the consent was obtained in late August. After completion, the rig will proceed to drill the Hurri prospect, also located in PL533.

Lundin Norway is the operator of PL533 with a 35 percent working interest. The partners are Aker BP with 35 percent and DEA Norge with 30 percent.
