Stavanger. In the Blåbaer field in the northern North Sea  the exploration well 34/5-1S in production licence 374 S has been successfully completed. The well, located north-east of the Snorre field, proved an oil accumulation in a reservoir of Jurassic age (Cook Formation).

A comprehensive data acquisition programme has been carried out. The resource potential will now be evaluated with a sidetrack.

The well was drilled with the semi-submersible Bredford Dolphin in a water depth of 387 meter to a total vertical depth of 3712 meter below sea level and completed in the Triassic Statfjord Formation.

This is the first exploration well in production licence 374 S which was awarded in the Awards in Pre-defined Areas (APA) licensing round in 2005.
The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned following the sidetrack.

The licensees in production license PL 374 S are:

  • Wintershall Norge ASA - 20 %
  • BG Norge AS - 45  % (operator)
  • Petoro AS… - 20 %
  • Premier Oil - 15 %
