The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks in the the Cook formation.

The well encountered about 96 metres of aquiferous sandstone in the Cook formation with poor to moderate reservoir quality. The well is classified as dry.

Well 34/6-4 was drilled to a vertical depth of 4084 metres below the sea surface and was terminated in the Lower Jurassic Burton Formation. 

Water depth in the area is 390 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
