San Donato Milanese (Milan), 10 March 2021 - Eni through Var Energi, jointly owned by Eni (69.85%) and by HitecVision (30.15%) announces a new oil discovery in production licence PL532 in the Barents Sea by drilling the exploration well 7220/7-4 on the Isflak exploration prospect. Var Energi AS holds a 30% stake in the licence, while Equinor Energy (which is the Operator) holds 50% and Petoro AS 20%.

The well is located about 10 km southwest of the Skrugard discovery and 230 km northwest of Hammerfest in a water depth of 349 m and was drilled with the semisubmersible drilling rig Transocean Enabler. Exploration well 7220/7-4 was drilled to a vertical depth of 2080 m below sea level and reached TD in the Jurassic Tubaen Formation. The main bore proved an oil column of over 100 m, primarily in good quality Jurassic sequences of Stø Formation and Nordmela Formation sandstones.

Preliminary estimates place the size of the discovery between 65 and 100 Mboe hydrocarbon in place. The new discovery will be linked to the Johan Castberg development hub. PL 532 was awarded in the 20th Licencing Round in 2009, containing the Oil and Gas discoveries of Skrugard, Havis and Drivis that will be connected to the Johan Castberg FPSO.

The Isflak discovery confirms Var Energi’s successful Infrastructure-Led Exploration strategy in the Barents Sea, proofing additional high value barrels for the Johan Castberg project. Eni through Var Energi announces a new oil discovery offshore Norway
