Norwegian North Sea discovery for Eni
Eni Norge AS, as the operator of production license 293, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 34/12-1. The well was drilled in the Viking graben, 30 km north-east of the Kvitebjørn field in the North Sea.
The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Jurassic strata in the ‘Afrodite’ prospect. The well proved gas and condensate in Middle Jurassic strata. The well has been formation tested, and comprehensive data acquisition and sampling has been carried out. Now the resource potential will be evaluated by Eni. Wildcat well 34/12-1 was drilled to a total depth of 4688 meters under the surface of the sea and terminated in Early Jurassic strata. The sea depth was 373 meters. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate also confirmed the discovery in an announcement on its Web site. Rome-based Eni is operator of the project and owns a 45% stake, it said. StatoilHydro ASA owns 40% and Idemitsu Kosan Co. holds 15% in the deposit (Oilvoice, Bg)
