ABERDEEN, UK – The semisubmersible Transocean Arctic has spudded exploration well 6406/12-5 S on the Blink prospect in 360 m (1,181 ft) of water in the Norwegian Sea for operator VNG.
The surrounding license PL586 also contains last year’s Pil and Bue oil discoveries, and is close to the producing Njord field.
According to partner Faroe Petroleum, the well will target the Upper Jurassic reservoirs analogous to the Pil, Bue and Draugen field reservoirs.
It follows close on completion of the same partnership’s Boomerang exploratory well, which encountered a 26-m (85-ft) gross Upper Jurassic intra-Spekk/Rogn sandstone estimated to hold 13-31 MMboe recoverable.
