MOL Norge AS has drilled a dry well in south North Sea

1/9/2019

STAVANGER -- The well has been drilled about 45 km east of the Valhall and Ekofisk fields and 20 km north of the Norwegian-Danish border in the Mandal High area.

The primary and secondary exploration targets for the well were to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks in the Paleocene and in the Permian (Intra Våle formation sandstone and the Rotliegend group, respectively).

The well encountered an approximately 34-m thick sandstone layer in the Intra Våle formation with good reservoir quality. In the Rotliegend group, the well encountered 105 m with relatively tight sandstone.

Extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out. The well is dry.

This is the first exploration well in production license 860. The license was awarded in APA 2016.

Well 2/6-6 S was drilled to a vertical depth of 3,576 m and 3,843 m measured depth below the sea surface, and it was terminated in the Rotliegend group. Water depth at the site is 69 m.

The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 2/6-6 S was drilled by the Rowan Viking.
