Small oil discovery near Johan Sverdrup

Statoil, operator for production licence 265, is in the process of completing drilling of the wildcat well 16/2-18 S.

The well has been drilled 9 km west of the discovery well 16/2-6 and about 3 km west of appraisal well 16/2-14 in the North Sea.

The well encountered an oil zone of 15 metres in weathered/fractured granite in the basement. However, no oil-water contact was established. The oil in the basement is not in communication with the Johan Sverdrup discovery.
