Statoil finds oil and gas near Gimle field

Norway’s Statoil has found oil and gas at its wildcat well in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
The company, operator of Gimle Unit and production licence 193, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 34/10-55 S.
According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, the company encountered a total oil and gas column of about 170 meters, of which 60 meters are in sandstone with good to very good reservoir properties in the Statfjord group and 10 meters in sandstone with moderate to good properties in the Lunde formation.

The well was drilled from the Gullfaks C platform to a structure east of the Gimle field, about 7 kilometers northeast of the Gullfaks field and 7 kilometers south of the Visund Sør field in the northern part of the North Sea.

Preliminary calculations indicate that the discovery contains between 1 and 3 million standard cubic metres (Sm3) of recoverable oil equivalents. The discovery will be produced from a subsequent development well from the Gullfaks C platform.

The well was not formation-tested, but data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.
