Repsol prepares for high-impact Barents Sea well

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Faroe Petroleum expects the semisubmersible Aker Barents to spud the Darwin exploration well (7218/11-1) soon in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea.

Darwin is on the Veslemøy High in the frontier western part of the Barents Sea southwest of Statoil’ Skrugard and Havis oil discoveries.

Multiple targets have been identified on 3D seismic. The well, operated by Repsol, will test the main Darwin prospect, and the results should help de-risk the large upside potential in the rest of the license area.
