Lundin Energy Norway AS will plug well 6306/9-1 in Norwegian Sea production license (PL) 886 about 72 km east of Ormen Lange field. The well is dry.
The exploration well, the first in the license, was drilled by the Deepsea Stavanger drilling facility in 228 m of water to a vertical depth of 1,025 m below sea level. The well was terminated in basement rock.
The primary exploration target was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (Rogn formation). The secondary exploration target was to investigate the reservoir potential in basement rock.
The well encountered 152 m of sandstone, 73 m of which were presumably in the Rogn formation from the Upper Jurassic Age, with good to very good reservoir quality. The sequence under the Rogn formation consists of sandstones of unknown age, 25 m of which with moderate reservoir quality. In the secondary exploration target, the well encountered about 76 m of tight basement rock. Data acquisition has been performed.
Lundin Energy is operator of PL 886 (60%) with partners Petoro AS (20%) and Spirit Energy Norway AS (20%).
