The Brasse prospect is located immediately south of the producing Brage oil field and, if successful, could be tied-back to the Brage facilities or alternatively to other nearby installations.

Faroe Petroleum, the independent oil and gas company focusing principally on exploration, appraisal, development and production opportunities in Norway and the UK, is pleased to announce the commencement of the Faroe-operated Brasse exploration well 31/7-1 in the Norwegian North Sea (Faroe 50%).

The Brasse prospect is located immediately south of the producing Brage oil field (Faroe 14.3%) and, if successful, could be tied-back to the Brage facilities or alternatively to other nearby installations.  The well will target the Jurassic aged sandstones in a four-way dip-closed structure with a total vertical depth of approximately 2,750 metres in the Early Jurassic Statfjord Formation.

The water depth at the site is 118 metres and the well will be drilled using the semi-submersible Transocean Arctic drilling rig. The co-venturer in the PL740 licence is Core Energy AS (50%).
