Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/7/2016, Location: Europe

Lundin Norway AS, operator of production licence 544, is in the process of completing the drilling of wildcat well 16/4-10. The well is dry. The well is being drilled about 10 kilometres southwest of the 16/4-6 S (Luno II) oil discovery in the central part of the North Sea, 220 kilometres west of Stavanger.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Ula formation).

The well encountered about 160 metres of aquiferous sandstones in the Upper Jurassic to Middle Triassic, of which about 90 metres, mainly in the Middle Jurassic Sleipner formation, are of good reservoir quality. The well also encountered 75 metres of reservoir rocks with very good reservoir quality in the Paleocene Ty formation. There are traces of petroleum in the Sleipner formation. The well is classified as dry.

Extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.

This is the second exploration well in production licence 544, which was awarded in APA 2009.

Well 16/4-10 was drilled to a vertical depth of 2 638 metres below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Lower Triassic Smith Bank formation.

Water depth at the site is 95 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 16/4-10 was drilled by the Island Innovator drilling facility.
