Equinor finds oil near Oseberg satellite
Equinor and partners plan to place on production a near-field oil discovery made as part of the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 project in the Norwegian North Sea.
The 30/6-H-9-T4 well proved a 112-m oil column in an untested zone of the Lower Jurassic Statfjord formation on the southern Alpha structure.
Equinor described reservoir characteristics as “excellent with high oil saturation.” It estimates recoverable resources at 22 million bbl oil.
The well will produce to the remotely operated H platform, center of the Vestflanken 2 project, which came onstream last October.
The Askepott jack up rig owned by the Oseberg license drilled the well.
Equinor operates the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 production license with a 49.3% interest. Other interests are Petoro AS, 33.6%; Total E&P Norge AS, 14.7%; and ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS, 2.4%.
