Wintershall to abandon Zeppelin as dry well

Lundin Norway AS has completed wildcat well 10/4-1 located in the North Sea offshore Norway. The well is dry. 

Lundin Norway is a partner in PL734 with 30 percent working interest. The operator is Wintershall Norge AS with 40 percent working interest while Centrica Resources (Norge) AS has 30 percent working interest.

The well was drilled in PL734, approximately 35 km southeast of the Yme field in the southern North Sea.

The exploration well 10/4-1, operated by Wintershall Norge AS, was targeting the Zeppelin prospect. The primary objective for the well was to prove the presence of hydrocarbons in sandstones of the Middle to Late Jurassic Vestland Group. The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in Upper Permain reservoir rocks.

Well 10/4-1 encountered approx. 90 metres of reservoir rocks in the Sandnes and Bryne formations with good reservoir quality. The well did not encounter a reservoir in Permian rocks. The well is dry.

Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out. This is the first exploration well in production licence 734. The licence was awarded in APA 2013.

It was drilled by the drilling rig Borgland Dolphin to a total vertical depth of 2,384 meters subsea. The well is being plugged and abandoned as a dry well. The rig will now proceed to drill wildcat well 6507/3-11 S in production licence 650 in the Norwegian Sea, where E.ON E&P Norge AS is the operator.
