Offshore staff

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – The semisubmersible Bredford Dolphin has spudded Lundin Norway’s latest exploratory well in the Edvard Grieg area of the central Norwegian North Sea.

Well 16/1-25 S is targeting the Rolvsnes prospect in license PL338C, 6 km (3.7 mi) south of the Edvard Grieg field in the North Sea and also close to the Luno II discovery.

Lundin is pursuing hydrocarbons in thin Jurassic/Cretaceous sandstone reservoir overlying porous fractured basement. Prospective resources could be 107 MMboe.

Drilling is expected to last roughly 45 days, with a planned TD of 2,275 m (7,464 ft) below mean sea level. OMV is Lundin’s partner in the license.
