FILICUDI – 7219/12-1

FILICUDI – 7219/12-1

Meet the candidates: Lundin Norway / PL533 Barents Sea 2017

The primary and secondary exploration targets for wildcat well 7219/12-1 were to prove petroleum in two Early Jurassic and Late/Middle Triassic reservoir levels (Tubåen and Fruholmen formations). The primary exploration target for appraisal well 7219/12-1 A was to collect geological data in Early Jurassic/Late Triassic sandstone rocks (Nordmela and Tubåen formations).

Well 7219/12-1 proved a total oil column of about 60 metres and an overlying total gas column of about 60 metres, of which 55 metres and 45 metres, respectively, were in sandstone with good reservoir properties in the Tubåen formation. Well 7219/12-1 A confirmed a mostly equivalent gas and oil column in the Nordmela and Tubåen formations with good reservoir properties.
Lundin and partners have taken the responsibility to test the Jurassic potential on the margin of the Polheim Sub-Platform. These wells were drilled in prolongation of several discoveries made by Statoil to the northeast, of which three are being developed as the Johan Castberg field.

Exploration Innovation Prize

“The Exploration Innovation Prize will be awarded to a license group, company, team or individual who during the last two years have given a courageous and innovative contribution in exploring for oil and gas on the NCS.  The recipient has matured and drilled a prospect that can be defined as high risk and high potential. The prospect must have been drilled, but can be classified as dry, technical discovery or commercial discovery”.
The Programme Committee for the conference NCS Exploration – Recent Discoveries has selected ten worthy candidates amongst wells that were drilled in 2016 or 2017.
“A true wildcat, with very limited well control, but a valid geological concept …
The candidates are (in alphabetical order): Boné (Eni), Brasse (Faroe), Cara (Engie), Filicudi (Lundin), Kayak (Statoil), Koigen Central (Statoil), Korpfjell(Statoil), Salander (Statoil), Zumba (Tullow) and Ørnen (Lundin).
The exploration community is now – until April 2nd, encouraged to vote for their favourite candidate, upon which the programme committee will select three candidates for a final vote.

“The well was drilled successfully up-flank and proved oil and gas that are very likely to be a commercial discovery
The winner of the Exploration Innovation Prize will be announced during the conference dinner May 23.
