According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD), the semisubmersible Leiv Eiriksson drilled well 6406/6-4 S in production license 510 in 261 m (856 ft) of water.
The well encountered a 25-m (82-ft) gas column in the Garn formation, with 102-m (334-ft) thick sandstone of good reservoir quality.
NPD estimates the resource in the range of 1.5-3 MMcmoe, probably sub-economic at today’s prices.
This was the first well on the license, awarded under Norway’s APA 2009 round.
