Nexen Drills Duster Near Heidrun Field, Offshore Norway

 

Nexen Exploration Norge AS, operator of production licence 434, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 6507/8-8.

The well was drilled about seven kilometres southeast of the Heidrun field.

The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Tilje and Åre formations).

Reservoir rocks of expected thickness and of good quality were encountered in the Tilje and Åre formations. Data acquisition and sampling were carried out. The well is dry.

This is the first exploration well in production licence 434. The production licence was awarded in APA 2006.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2525 metres below sea level, and was terminated in the Åre formation in the Lower Jurassic. The water depth is 329 metres. The well has now been permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 6507/8-8 was drilled by the drilling facility Songa Delta, which will proceed to production licence 378 in the North Sea to drill appraisal well 35/12-4, where Wintershall Norge ASA is the operator.
