Lundin nears completion on Torvastad sidetrack

Lundin Norway AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lundin Petroleum AB, is in the process of completing sidetrack well 16/2-20A on the Torvastad prospect on PL501 in the North Sea sector of the Norwegian Continental Shelf (OGJ Online, Nov. 19, 2013).

The well has been drilled 770 m west of the main Torvastad exploration well 16/2-20S to investigate the potential of an up-flank continuous Jurassic reservoir.

The reservoir section has been cored with oil shows, but demonstrates poor reservoir quality, Lundin said. Wireline logging is ongoing and preliminary results confirm the core observations. Further wire-line logging is required to confirm the initial results.

Once the logging of the well has been completed, the Island Innovator rig will move to PL338 to drill the Edvard Grieg South East appraisal well 16/1-18.

Lundin Norway is PL501 operator at 40% interest. Its partners are Statoil Petroleum AS 40% and Maersk Oil Norway 20%.
