Norway: Tellus to join Lundin's Luno development

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 19
– Lundin Norway AS, Stockholm, said its 16/1-15A sidetrack on the Tellus prospect off Norway has proved a 50-m oil column and will be included in the Luno development program.

The oil column at the discovery in the PL338 block included a thin Lower Cretaceous sandstone with excellent reservoir quality overlying fractured basement, Lundin Norway said. Initial gross contingent resource range for the Tellus discovery is estimated at 11-55 million bbl of oil equivalent, 90% oil, an independently audited figure.

Lundin, operator of PL338 with 50% interest, drilled the 16/1-15A well to 1,986 m true vertical depth below sea level using the Bredford Dolphin semisubmersible (see map, OGJ, Apr. 4, 2011, p. 50). Lundin’s partners are Wintershall Norge ASA with 30% and RWE Dea Norge AS 20%.

The Future of US Refining

When Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
