Statoil completes appraisal well in Johan Sverdrup discovery
BY DOMINIC CHOPPING
Statoil said it has completed another appraisal well in production licence 265 in the Johan Sverdrup discovery together with partners Petoro, Det Norske Oljeselskap and Lundin Petroleum .
Gro Haatvedt, SVP Exploration Norway, said "We are satisfied with the results of our appraisal programme in PL265 part of Johan Sverdrup in 2012. We have proven new volumes to Johan Sverdrup in the Geitungen segment, and drilled two important appraisal wells in the central and southern parts of the licence."
In 2013 we will continue appraising the discovery, and plan to drill from one to three new wells in PL265. The well encountered a 30 m gross oil column in Upper-Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks, of which about 20 m were of very good reservoir quality, as expected. The oil water contact was encountered at the same depth as in the neighbouring wells.
