Equinor’s well 7220/2-2 in the “Snøras” prospect in the Barents Sea is dry.

The well, drilled by the Transocean Enabler rig, is located in production licence 1080, which was awarded in the Awards in Predefined Area (APA) in 2020.

In 2014, Equinor and the partners made the “Isfjell” (7220/2-1) gas discovery, just to the north of the “Snøras” well.

In production licence 532, south of “Snøras”, the same partnership has made multiple discoveries. These discoveries are being considered for tie-back to the Johan Castberg field, where production start is planned for late 2024.

Geological information

The objective of the wildcat well was to prove petroleum in Early Jurassic reservoir rocks in the Stø Formation.

The well encountered the Stø Formation with a total thickness of around 66 metres, 63 metres of which was sandstone with very good reservoir quality. The well is classified as dry with traces of hydrocarbons.

Well 7220/2-2 was drilled to a vertical depth of 821 metres below sea level, and was terminated in the Nordmela Formation in the Early Jurassic.

Water depth at the site is 427 metres. The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.
