Norway: ConocoPhillips Abandons Dry Well Near Ula field in the North Sea


ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS, operator of production license 331, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 8/10-3. The well is located about 25 kilometres southeast of the Ula field in the North Sea.

The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in the reservoir rocks in the Permian Rotliegendes group (the Auk formation). The well encountered the Auk formation with the expected reservoir rocks and reservoir quality, but the well was dry.

8/10-3 is the first exploration well in production license 331. The license was awarded in APA 2004.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 5 692 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Auk formation.

The water depth is 67 metres and the well has now been plugged and abandoned.

The well was drilled by the drilling facility Maersk Gallant which is now moving to the Ekofisk field to drill production wells where ConocoPhillips is the operator.
