Statoil, operator of production licence 089, has concluded the drilling of observation well 34/7-H-2 H. The well encountered oil.

The well was drilled between Vigdis and Snorre in the northern part of the North Sea.

The well proved a 24-metre oil column in the Cook formation with somewhat poorer reservoir quality than expected.

The size of the discovery is still being assessed. The discovery is being evaluated regarding whether or not it may be commercially interesting.
