Aker BP ASA, operator of production licence 1141, has concluded the drilling of exploration well 16/1-35 S.

The well was drilled about 6.5 kilometres west of the Edvard Grieg field in the central part of the North Sea and 208 kilometres west of Sandnes.

The primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks in the Draupne Formation.

The secondary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks from the Vestland Group.

The well encountered the Draupne Formation at about 520 metres, including a total of 298 metres of sandstone layers with good reservoir quality.

In the secondary exploration target, the well encountered the Vestland Group of 174 metres, 114 metres of which was a sandstone reservoir with moderate to good reservoir quality.

The well is dry. Data acquisition has been carried out.

This is the first exploration well in production licence 1141, which was awarded in APA 2021.

Well 16/1-35 S was drilled to a vertical depth of 3150 metres below sea level and was terminated in the Skagerrak Formation from the Triassic.

Water depth at the site is 109 metres. The well has been permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 16/1-35 S was drilled by the Scarabeo 8 drilling facility, which will now drill wildcat well 25/4-15 in production licence 919 in the North Sea, where AkerBP ASA is the operator.
