Delineation of appraisal well on Johan Sverdrup

Statoil is in the process of concluding the drilling of appraisal well 16/2-15 on the Johan Sverdrup discovery in the North Sea.

 

Appraisal well 16/2-15 was drilled in a south-western segment about 5 kilometres south-west of the 16/2-6 discovery well and 2.3 kilometres south of appraisal well 16/2-11.

The well encountered a 30-metre gross oil column in Upper-Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks, of which about 20 metres were of very good reservoir quality, as expected. The oil/water contact was encountered at the same depth as in the neighbouring wells.

This is the tenth exploration well in production licence 265, which was awarded in the North Sea round in 2000.
