Oil discovery northeast of the Visund field

Total, operator of production licence 554, is in the process of completing the drilling of wildcat well 34/6-2 S and appraisal well 34/6-2 A. The wells encountered oil.

The wells were drilled about 30 kilometres northeast of the Visund field in the northern part of the North Sea, and about 185 kilometres northwest of Bergen.

Preliminary estimates place the size of the discovery between 4 and 12 million standard cubic metres (Sm3) of recoverable oil. The licensees will evaluate the discovery together with other prospects nearby, and the plan is to drill a new exploration well near the discovery.
