Offshore staff

COPENHAGEN, DenmarkMaersk Oil has encountered oil with its appraisal well Jude-1 (5504/7-18) in license 8/06 in the southwestern Danish North Sea, according to the Danish Energy Agency.

The jackup Noble Sam Turner drilled Jude-1 as a vertical data acquisition well in 44 m (144 ft) of water with three stratigraphic targets: lower Cretaceous chalk, upper Jurassic Farsund shale, and potential sandstones within the underlying Farsund formation.

The well confirmed oil in the lower Cretaceous Tuxen formation of the Bo South deposit, as proven by earlier wells in the area. It was terminated in upper Jurassic clay stone at a depth of 3,488 m (11,443 ft) below mean sea level.

However, it did not encounter the prognosed sandstones in the underlying part of the Farsund formation.

The rig was due to transfer to the Maersk-operated Tyra South East field for development drilling.
