Faroe - Pil exploration well

Faroe Petroleum is pleased to announce the completion of a successful initial side-track appraisal well on the Pil oil and gas discovery (Faroe 25%) in the Norwegian Sea.

The Pil side-track well (6406/12-3 B), to appraise for additional hydrocarbons along the Pil structure and down-dip from the initial discovery well, has reached a total depth of 3,996 metres below sea level. Results based on extensive coring, wireline logs and pressure data show that the well has encountered oil in reservoir sands with a very high net to gross ratio. Preliminary data indicate a gross hydrocarbon-bearing reservoir section with approximately 80 metres of oil in the Upper Jurassic reservoir of the Rogn Formation. The oil-bearing interval in the side-track well was found to be at a similar pressure level to the oil bearing interval in the initial discovery well.
