Offshore staff

OSLO, Norway – Statoil has proven a small oil accumulation 7 km (4.3 mi) from the Oseberg Sør field in the northern Norwegian North Sea.

The semisubmersible Songa Delta drilled the well on production license 104 in 103 m (338 ft) of water.

According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, the well encountered a 34-m (111-ft) oil column in sandstone with moderate to good reservoir quality, and an oil/water contact 3,242 m (10,636 ft) below sea level.

Preliminary estimates suggest 1-2 MMboe recoverable.

The discovery will be developed with the Oseberg Delta 2 project, and the license partners are considering a production well in the structure.
