Wintershall group has oil discovery offshore Stavanger

Wintershall Norge AS will attempt to determine the commerciality of an oil discovery on the PL 457 license in the North Sea offshore Norway.

The company’s preliminary resource estimate is 20-40 million bbl of recoverable oil for the Asha Noor appraisal wells 16/1-16 and the 16/1-16A delineation well. The wells are 3 km east of the 16/1-9 discovery well in the Ivar Aasen discovery and about 3 km north of Edvard Grieg field.

Wintershall said the Asha Noor discovery, in 113 m of water 200 km west of Stavanger, “provides further confirmation that the Utsira high region offers considerable potential.”

Asha Noor is the company’s first drilling on PL 457, awarded in 2007. Wintershall Norge is operator with 40% interest. Holding 20% each are E.ON E&P Norge AS, Bridge Energy Norge AS, and VNG Norge AS.

The 16/1-16 and 16/1-16A wells were drilled to vertical depths of 2,722 m and 2,683 m below mean sea level, respectively, and were terminated in the Permian Rotliegendes and the Triassic Skagerrak formations. The wells were permanently plugged and abandoned.
