Lundin spuds Edvard Grieg appraisal well

Lundin Norway AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lundin Petroleum AB, has started drilling appraisal well 16/1-18 on PL338 in the southeastern part of the Edvard Grieg field in the North Sea sector of the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

Lundin said the well is being drilled to confirm the geological model on that part of the field to optimize drainage strategy and the placement of development wells.

The well also will seek to identify potential increases to the company’s current 2P reserves volume estimates. The well is 2.4 km east of the Edvard Grieg platform.

The well will be drilled using the Island Innovator semisubmersible drilling rig at a planned total depth 2,300 m below mean sea level over 55 days.

Lundin Norway received final approval for its plan for development and operation of Edvard Grieg from the Norwegian Parliament in 2012 (OGJ Online, June, 12, 2012).

Lundin Norway is operator with 50% interest. Partners are OMV Norge AS 20%, Statoil Petroleum AS 15%, and Wintershall Norge AS 15%.
