Statoil Petroleum AS, operator of production licence 169, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 25/11-28. The well is dry. The well was drilled 13 kilometres south of the Grane field in the North Sea.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Draupne formation) and in the Permian (the Rotliegend group). The well encountered 22 metres of sandstone in the Upper Jurassic, of which 7.5 metres is of good reservoir quality. Reservoir rocks were not proven in the Permian. The well is dry.

Extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.

This is the 15th exploration well in production licence 169.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2563 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in basement rock.

Water depth at the site is 118 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

The well was drilled by the Songa Trym drilling facility, which will now drill wildcat well 34/8-16 S in production licence 120 in the northern North Sea, where Statoil Petroleum AS is the operator.
