Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/18/2019, Location: Europe

Wintershall Norge A/S, operator of production licence 847, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 6706/6-2 S. The well was drilled about 60 kilometres north of the Aasta Hansteen field and 310 kilometres northwest of Sandnessjoen in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in two reservoir levels in the upper Cretaceous (the Nise formation).

The well encountered both of the sandstone reservoirs in the Nise formation. The upper reservoir is about 230 meters thick, with effective reservoir of 175 metres with moderate reservoir properties. The lower reservoir is about 180 metres thick with effective reservoir of 175 metres with poor reservoir properties. There were traces of gas in both reservoirs. The well is classified as dry.

Extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.

This is the first exploration well in production licence 847. The licence was awarded in APA 2015.

Well 6706/6-2 S was drilled to a measured depth of 3876 metres and a vertical depth of 3767 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Upper Cretaceous. Water depth is 1214 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 6706/6-2 S was drilled by the Transocean Spitsbergen drilling facility, which will now drill wildcat well 36/1-3 in production licence 885 in the northern part of the North Sea, where Equinor is the operator.
