Aker BP ASA, operator of production licence 1041, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 24/12-7.
The well was drilled about 17 kilometres southwest of the Bøyla field in the North Sea, and 230 kilometres west of Stavanger.
The primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Palaeocene in the Hermod Formation. The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks from the Palaeocene in the Heimdal Formation. In the primary exploration target, the well encountered the Hermod Formation in a thickness of about 75 metres. A 38-metre oil column was proven in a total of 20 metres of sandstone, with very good to extremely good reservoir properties.
The oil/water contact at 2132 metres below sea level was confirmed with pressure points.
