Statoil Petroleum AS, operator of production licence 348 C, is in the process of completing the drilling of wildcat wells 6407/8-7 and 6407/8-7 A.

Both wells have been drilled about four kilometres north of the Hyme field in the southern part of the Norwegian Sea and 140 kilometres north of Kristiansund.

The primary exploration target in well 6407/8-7 was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Ile formation). The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Tilje and Åre formations). The well encountered about 95 metres of the Ile formation, of which 70 metres were sandstone with good reservoir properties. The Tilje and Åre formations were also encountered, in thicknesses of 200 and 170 metres respectively, of which 160 and 75 metres respectively are sandstone with good reservoir quality. The well is dry.

The purpose of well 6407/8-7 A was to prove petroleum in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Tilje formation) higher up in the structure. The well encountered about 110 metres of reservoir rocks in the Tilje formation, of which 80 metres were sandstone of good reservoir quality. The well also encountered 200 metres of the Åre formation, of which 95 metres were sandstone with good reservoir properties. The well is classified as dry.
