Aker BP ASA, operator of production licence 150 B, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 24/9-11 S. The well was drilled about 7 kilometres west of the Volund field, 11 kilometres southwest of the Alvheim field and 230 kilometres northwest of Stavanger in the central part of the North Sea. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Palaeocene reservoir rocks (the Hermod formation).

Well 24/9-11 S encountered a 7-metre thick sandstone layer with very good reservoir properties. Some thin, partially cemented sandstone layers were also encountered above the main reservoir, with partially good reservoir properties. The sandstones have been interpreted as being remobilised from the Hermod formation and injected into the overlying Balder formation. The reservoir rocks have only faint traces of oil. The well is classified as dry.

Data acquisition and sampling were carried out. This is the first exploration well in production licence 150 B. The licence was awarded in APA 2010. Well 24/9-11 S was drilled to measured and vertical depths of 2211 and 2114 metres below the sea surface, respectively, and was terminated in the Sele formation in Palaeocene.

Water depth is 122 metres. The well has now been permanently plugged and abandoned. Well 24/9-11 S was drilled by the Transocean Arctic drilling facility, which will now proceed to drill observation well 24/6-A-6 H in production licence 088 BS on the Alvheim field, where Aker BP is the operator.
