Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/28/2017, Location: Europe

Aker BP ASA, operator of production licence 677, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 25/4-11. The well is dry. The well was drilled in the central part of the North Sea, about 11 kilometres northwest of the Vilje field and 220 kilometres northwest of Stavanger. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Palaeocene reservoir rocks (the Heimdal formation). The well encountered about 70 metres of aquiferous sandstone in the Heimdal formation with very good reservoir quality. The well is dry.

Data acquisition has been carried out. This is the first exploration well in production licence 677 (link to the NPD’s fact page). The licence was awarded in APA 2012.

25/4-11 was drilled to a vertical depth of 2372 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Heimdal formation. Water depth at the site is 112 metres. The well has been permanently plugged and abandoned. Well 25/4-11 was drilled by the Maersk Interceptor drilling facility, which will now proceed to drill appraisal well 25/2-19 S in production licence 442, where Aker BP ASA is the operator.
