Greenland: No shows found at West Disko well

By OGJ editors

Cairn Energy PLC is plugging the Delta-1 well on the Napariaq block off western Greenland after it encountered no hydrocarbon shows.

The Leiv Eiriksson semisubmersible drilled Delta-1 to 2,977 m in Tertiary volcanic in 293 m of water 365 km off Aasiaat. The well had targeted the Cretaceous section beneath Tertiary volcanics.

Meanwhile, the Ocean Rig Corcovado semisubmersible has spudded the AT2-1 well in 1,045 m of water on the Atammik block 198 km off Nuuk. It is the fifth well in the 2011 program.

The Leiv Eiriksson rig will reenter the AT7-1 well in 909 m of water on the Atammik block 198 km off Nuuk and drill to the planned total depth. The well had been temporarily suspended while the rig drilled Delta-1 to optimize drilling time in the West Disko area.
