Songa Delta comes up dry in Norwegian North Sea

Det norske oljeselskap ASA has completed the drilling of wildcat well 6507/11-10, located five kilometers northeast of the 6507/11-1 Midgard gas and condensate accumulation, which is part of the Asgard field in the Norwegian Sea. 

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in the Fangst and Bat group in Middle to Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks. The well encountered thinner than anticipated reservoir rocks in the Fangst and Bat group, but with good reservoir quality. 

This is the first exploration well in Production Licence 476, which was awarded in APA 2007. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2,290 meters below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Tilje formation in the Lower Jurassic. The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned. 

The well was drilled in 269 meters of water depth by the Songa Delta drilling facility. The rig will now move to the North Sea to drill appraisal well 16/1-11 (production license 001 B), also operated by Det norske oljeselskap ASA.
