Wintershall makes progress with Skarfjell
Appraisal well confirms expectations – resource estimates between 60 and 160 million barrels of oil
Wintershall, the largest internationally active German crude oil and natural gas producer, announces the successful drilling of the Skarfjell appraisal well in the Northeastern North Sea. The well 35/9-8 was drilled 1.8 kilometers north of the Skarfjell discovery well (35/9-7), and approximately 16 kilometers southwest of the Gjøa platform. The purpose of the well was to prove oil in the upper Jurassic Intra Heather sandstones, as found in the discovery well (35/9-7).
“The appraisal well confirms the northern extension of the reservoir sands found in the discovery well and our estimated volume range of 60-160 million barrels. The successful production test has also demonstrated reservoir deliverability. Our second appraisal well will evaluate field extension to the south, after which we will evaluate a possible development,” says Bernd Schrimpf, Managing Director of Wintershall Norge AS.
