Drilling rig Bredford Dolphin
Lundin Petroleum AB, through its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS (Lundin Norway), has completed the drilling of wildcat well 33/12-10 S. The well investigated the hydrocarbon potential of the Vollgrav South prospect in PL631, which is located 150 km west of Florø on the Norwegian west coast and between the Gullfaks and Statfjord fields.
The main objective of well 33/12-10 S was to test the reservoir properties and hydrocarbon potential of the Upper Jurassic Sandstones equivalent to the reservoir in the Borg Field.
The well encountered no hydrocarbons and is being plugged and abandoned as a dry hole.
The license was awarded in APA 2011 and the well is the first exploration well in PL631.
The well was drilled to total depth of 3,072 metres below mean sea level using the drilling rig Bredford Dolphin.
