Lundin completes Lindarormen exploration well

Swedish independent oil and gas exploration and production company, Lundin Petroleum AB, through its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 6405/12-1 on PL584.

The well investigated the hydrocarbon potential of the Lindarormen prospect, which is located 93 miles (150 km) northwest of Kristiansund on the Norwegian coast and approximately 50 miles (80 km) northeast of the Ormen Lange field.

Lindarormen prospect

The main objective of well 6405/12-1 was to test the reservoir properties and hydrocarbon potential of the Paleocene sandstones in the Rås Basin. No reservoir sandstones were encountered in the primary objective. Shaly sandstones with poor reservoir quality but with high gas readings were encountered in the Late Cretaceous Shetland Group.

Lundin operator with Bayerngas Norge as partner

The well is now being plugged and abandoned as a dry hole. The well was drilled to total depth of 10 843 ft (3305 m) below mean sea level using the drilling rig Bredford Dolphin. Lundin Norway is the operator and has a 60% working interest in PL584. Bayerngas Norge is partner with a 40% working interest.
