Norway: Det norske Finds Indications of Gas in the Stirby Deep Prospect


Det norske oljeselskap ASA has as operator in PL 341, found indications of gas in the Stirby Deep prospect in the Viking Graben in the North Sea, 75 km south of Sleipner.

The well data indicates gas/gas condensate under high pressure in a 70 meters thick sandstone with low porosity at 4870 meters below seabed.

It is too early to conclude about the discovery; hence the partnership has decided to drill deeper and collect additional data in order to confirm the gas, as well as assess both the size and commerciality of the discovery.

Consequently, the drilling will take a few more weeks and will not be concluded within the time previously indicated.

License owners are:

Det norske (30%), Wintershall (20%), Marathon (12%), North Energy (11%), Bayerngas (10%), GDF SUEZ (10%) and Talisman (7%).
