Lundin completes offshore oil exploration drilling at Johan Sverdrup

Lundin, operator of production licence 501, is in the process of completing the drilling of appraisal well 16/3-8 S on the 16/2-6 Johan Sverdrup oil discovery in the central part of the North Sea.

The objective of the well was to investigate the reservoir and flow properties of Upper Permian carbonate rocks (Zechstein group) and establish the presence, thickness and reservoir quality of the Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks.

Well 16/3-8 S encountered a 54-metre gross oil column, 13 metres of which were in Upper Jurassic sandstones with very good reservoir quality, and about 30 metres in the Zechstein group’s carbonate rocks with variable reservoir properties.
