Total to Drill Granatiana Sidetrack

Total E&P Norge, which last week made an oil discovery at Garantiana prospect, offshore Norway, is preparing to start drilling a sidetrack well, Bridge Energy today announced.

The objective of the well is to prove up additional oil volumes volumes in the Garantiana Cook formation and to determine oil/water contact.

The well, located in the production licence 554 in the Norwegian North Sea, will be drilled with the Borgland Dolphin semi submersible rig.

Last Friday Garantiana well penetrated an oil bearing Cook Formation with good reservoir characteristics. According to the announcement made by Bridge, which owns 20 per cent interest in the project, preliminary results showed an oil rate of around 4,000 bbl/day through a 28/64″ choke.

Total E&P Norge AS is the operator with a 40% interest in the well. Other partners Det norske oljeselskap ASA and Svenska Petroleum Exploration AS own a 20% interest each.
