Delineation of the Johan Sverdrup oil discovery

Lundin is about to complete drilling of appraisal well 16/5-4 on the 16/2-6 Johan Sverdrup oil discovery in the North Sea.

The well was drilled on the south-western flank of the discovery, about 4.3 kilometres southwest of appraisal well 16/5-2 S and about 3.1 kilometres southeast of well 16/5-3 (production licence 502).

The objective of the well was to delineate the Johan Sverdrup discovery by examining the thickness, properties and depth of the reservoir, as well as determine the height of the oil column and clarify the oil-water contact in the south-western part.

The licensees consider the area to be important with regard to the drainage strategy for the discovery. The reservoir came in somewhat thinner than expected, as the top is six metres deeper and the bottom is 8.5 metres shallower than predicted.
