Norwegian Petroleum Directorate announces dry well northeast of the Grane field - 25/11-26

Wednesday, Feb 13, 2013

Statoil Petroleum AS, operator of production licence 169, is about to complete drilling of wildcat well 25/11-26. The well was drilled about nine kilometres northeast of the Grane field in the North Sea.

The primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in the Balder formation in Eocene. The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic sandstone in the Draupne formation.

Reservoir development was not proven in either of these levels and the well is classified as dry.

Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.

Well 25/11-26 is the 13th exploration well in production licence 169. The licence was awarded in the 13th licensing round in 1991.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2213 metres below the sea surface and terminated in Early Jurassic rocks (the Statfjord formation). Water depth is 130 metres. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 25/11-26 was drilled by the Ocean Vanguard drilling facility, which will now proceed to production licence 502 (operated by Statoil) to drill appraisal well 16/5-3 on the 16/2-6 Johan Sverdrup discovery.
