Volve offshore oil field observation wells completed

Volve offshore oil field observation wells completed Statoil, operator of production licence 046 B and 046 BS, has completed drilling of observation wells 15/9-F-11 and 15/9-F-11-A on the Volve field in the central part of the North Sea.

The Volve field is located about 200 kilometres west of Stavanger. Wells 15/9-F-11 and 15/9-F-11 A were drilled just north of the Volve field and northwest on the actual field, respectively.

The exploration target for well 15/9-F-11 was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Hugin formation). The Hugin formation was encountered with reservoir rocks and reservoir quality as expected, but with only two thin oil zones of 2-3 metres each.

The objective of well 15/9-F-11 A was to delineate the extent of the Volve field in a segment towards the northwest. The well encountered an approx. 60-metre gross oil column in the Hugin formation in reservoir rocks with good reservoir quality. Pressure measurements confirm communication with the main field.
