Lundin Norway, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lundin Petroleum, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 25/10-12S on PL584 license offshore Norway.

The well tested the hydrocarbon potential of the Kopervik prospect in PL625, which is situated 175km west of Haugesund on the Norwegian west coast and approximately 20km northwest of the Johan Sverdrup discovery.

Additionally, the well 25/10-12S aimed to assess the reservoir properties and hydrocarbon potential of the Upper and Middle Jurassic Sandstones in the Kopervik sub-basin.

Hugin Fm sandstones have been identified at the well with very good reservoir quality and poorer developed sands in the Draupne Fm, the company said.

The upper part of the Upper Jurassic was cored and the entire pre-Cretaceous sequence pressure sampled and the well is being abandoned as a dry hole.

Drilled to a total depth of 2,540m below mean sea level, the well was terminated in sediments of Triassic age.

Upon completion, the drilling rig will be moved to drill the Zulu prospect in the Lundin Norway operated PL674BS.

Lundin Norway operates the PL625 with 40% working interest while other partners include Bayerngas Norge, Maersk Oil Norway and Petoro, each with a 20% working interest.
