Aker BP in minor oil discovery in North Sea
Aker BP has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 2/1-17 S and made a minor oil discovery south of the Gyda field in the North Sea offshore Norway.
The well 2/1-17 S is located in production license 019 C where Aker BP is the operator. It was drilled about 10 kilometres south of the Gyda field in the southern part of the North Sea, and about 280 kilometres southwest of Stavanger.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) said last Friday that the primary exploration target for the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks (the Ula Formation). The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in deeper reservoir rocks in the Jurassic and Triassic (the Eldfisk, Bryne and Skagerrak Formations).
Preliminary estimates place the size of the discovery between 0.5 and 1.5 million standard cubic metres (Sm3) of recoverable oil equivalent. The discovery is assessed as not commercial.
The well was not formation-tested, but extensive volumes of data have been collected.
According to the NPD, this is the second exploration well in production license 019 C, which was awarded in 1998.
