NPD reports small oil discovery by Statoil

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported a small oil discovery by Statoil Petroleum AS in the northern North Sea.

The 30/9-27 S in production license 104 encountered a 34-m oil column in sandstone with moderate to good reservoir quality. NPD cited preliminary estimates of 1-2 million cu m of recoverable oil equivalent.

The well was drilled by Songa Delta AS’s Songa Delta semisubmersible drilling rig about 7 km west of Oseberg Sor field. The well was drilled in 103 m of water to a measured depth of 3,989 m and a vertical depth of 3,353 m subsea, and terminated in the Ness formation.

The discovery will be developed with the Oseberg Delta 2 project (OGJ Online, Feb. 23, 2015).

The Songa Delta will now drill a development well in PL 104.
