Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/24/2023, Location: Europe

Equinor Energy AS, operator of production licence 554, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 34/6-6 S. The well was drilled about 10 kilometres north of the Visund field, and about 190 kilometres northwest of Bergen.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks in the Brent Group from the Middle Jurassic.

Well 34/6-6 S encountered the Tarbert, Etive and Rannoch Formation totalling 140 metres, of which about 90 metres were sandstone layers with poor to good reservoir quality. In addition, 14 metres of sandstone layers with poor to moderate reservoir quality were proven in the Cook Formation with a total thickness of approx. 75 metres.

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

This is the seventh exploration well in production licence 554, which was awarded in APA 2009.

Well 34/6-6 S was drilled to measured and vertical depths of 3965 metres and 3713 metres below sea level, and was terminated in the Burton Formation from the Early Jurassic.

Water depth at the site is 374 metres. The well has been permanently plugged and abandoned.

The well was drilled by the Transocean Spitsbergen drilling facility, which will now drill a development well on the Vigdis field in production licence 089 in the North Sea, where Equinor Energy AS is the operator.
