Maersk Oil abandons Twillingen South well

Maersk Oil has decided to plug and abandon exploration well 6406/6-4 in the PL 510 licence, in the Norwegian Sea.

According to North Energy, a partner in the licence, the decision follows a period of difficulties in a liner setting covering the intermediate part of the well, named the Tvillingen South.

The semi-submersible drilling rig, Leiv Eiriksson, will move on to Total’s well Skirne in PL 627.

“Licence partners in PL 510 will carefully evaluate new options for the licence work programme, including a potential redrill of the Tvillingen South prospect,” North Energy said in a statement.
Partners in the licence are Maersk Oil Norway AS (operator with 50 per cent), Edison Norge AS (30 per cent) and North Energy (20 per cent).
