Wintershall makes discovery in the Norwegian Sea

Wintershall, Germany`s largest internationally active oil and gas producer, announces a discovery of gascondensate in the own-operated Solberg prospect off the coast of Trondheim in the Norwegian Sea. Preliminary resource estimates for this discovery in production license 475 range between 6 and 25 million barrels of recoverable oil equivalents. The appraisal well is located only five kilometers away from Rodriguez, a discovery Wintershall made in 2013. The Tyrihans field lies eight kilometers to the Northeast. The company will now consider the Solberg discovery together with nearby discoveries.

The prime exploration target of the Solberg well was to prove hydrocarbons in Lower Cretaceous reservoir rocks (the Lange Formation). The appraisal well 6407/1-7 was drilled to a vertical and measured depth of 3345 meters below the sea surface. A sidetrack well (6407/1-7A) was drilled in order to explore the reservoir thickness and lithology. Water depth is 280 meters. Data and samples have been taken from both the main bore and the sidetrack well. These have been plugged and abandoned.

Current partners of the license are Wintershall Norge AS (operator) with 35% equity, Faroe Petroleum Norge AS (20%), Centrica Resources Norge AS (20%), Moeco Oil & Gas Norge AS (15%) and Spike Exploration Holding AS (10%).
