BlueNord has taken FID to drill the Harald East Middle Jurassic well near the Norwegian border.

BlueNord ASA has taken final investment decision (FID) to drill the Harald East Middle Jurassic well (HEMJ) in the Harald East area of the North Sea close to the Norwegian border. The well, to be spudded in summer 2024, could deliver production by end-2024, the company said in a release Jan. 12.   

This well will be drilled through the chalk reservoir and into the Jurassic reservoir, which has excellent reservoir properties,” said Marianne Eide, chief operating officer. There is a wide range of subsurface outcomes with respect to volume, the company said. If successful, the well could add volumes up to 8 MMboe net to BlueNord (80% gas).

Harald East area gas is exported through Tyra East infrastructure in the Danish Sector of the North Sea. Tyra field consists of two main process centers, Tyra East and Tyra West, which are linked to five unmanned satellite fields, including Tyra Southeast, Harald, Valdemar, Svend, and Roar. The gas is exported to shore and the oil is exported to Gorm E.
