The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate announced Tuesday that wildcat well 6306/5-2, located in the Repsol Norge AS operated production license 642, has come up dry.
Well 6306/5-2 was drilled approximately 40 miles southwest of the Njord field and around 20 miles southeast of the 6406/12-3 S and A discoveries (Pil and Bue) in the Norwegian Sea. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in the Rogn formation and Melke formation Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks. Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out and the well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
Drilled by the Bredford Dolphin (mid-water semisub), which will now proceed to drill wildcat well 16/1-25 S in production licence 338 C in the North Sea, well 6306/5-2 is the first exploration well in production licence 642.
