Lundin Petroleum, through its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 25/10-12S. The well investigated the hydrocarbon potential of the Kopervik prospect in PL625, which is located 175 km west of Haugesund on the Norwegian west coast and approximately 20 km northwest of the Johan Sverdrup discovery.
The main objective of well 25/10-12S was to test the reservoir properties and hydrocarbon potential of the Upper and Middle Jurassic Sandstones in the Kopervik sub-basin.
The well encountered Hugin Fm sandstones with very good reservoir quality and poorer developed sands in the Draupne Fm. The upper part of the Upper Jurassic was cored and the entire pre-Cretaceous sequence pressure sampled. Oil shows were observed in cores. The well is being plugged and abandoned as a dry hole.
