Aker BP ASA, operator of manufacturing licence 814, has accomplished the drilling of wildcat properly 15/6-15.
The properly was drilled about 15 km northeast of Gina Krog discipline, and 225 km west of Stavanger. The properly is dry.
The major exploration goal for properly 15/6-15 was to show petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Middle Jurassic Age (the Hugin and Sleipner formation). The secondary exploration goal was to look at reservoir rocks from the Triassic Age (the Skagerrak formation).
Well 15/6-15 encountered the Sleipner formation with a thickness of about 125 m, of which 40 m had been reservoir rocks of fine to reasonable reservoir high quality. The Skagerrak formation was encountered with a thickness of about 140 m, of which 15 m had been reservoir rocks with poor reservoir high quality. The properly is characterised as dry.
Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out.
This is the primary exploration properly in manufacturing licence 814, which was awarded in APA 2015.
The properly was drilled to a vertical depth of three,761 m under the ocean floor, and was terminated within the Skagerrak formation.
Water depth on the website is 109 m. The properly will now be completely plugged and deserted.
Well 15/6-15 was drilled by the Deepsea Stavanger drilling facility, which is able to now proceed to PL 777 within the central a part of the North Sea, to proceed drilling wildcat properly 15/6-16 S, the place Aker BP is the operator.
