Equinor finds oil near gas strike off Norway

Equinor finds oil near gas strike off Norway

OGJ reported that Equinor and partners have found oil in the Utsira High area of the Norwegian North Sea in a well that also confirmed the 2004 Verdandi natural gas discovery on license PL 167 (OGJ Online, May 22, 2003).

Calling the find commercial, Equinor estimated the 16/1-29 S “Lille Prinsen” well found 15-35 million boe of recoverable oil in its main target.

It also found oil in a shallower layer “with very good reservoir quality” but did not evaluate quantity.

The Odfjell Drilling Deepsea Bergen semisubmersible rig drilled the 16/1-29 S well to 1,987 m vertical depth, 2,001 m measured depth below sea surface, terminating in basement rock, according to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate. Water depth is 114 m.
