Lundin spuds Børselv

Written by  OE Staff Thursday, 31 August 2017 03:03

Lundin Petroleum has started drilling exploration well 7220/6-3 on the Børselv prospect in PL609 on the Loppa High in the southern Barents Sea.

The Børselv prospect is estimated to contain gross unrisked prospective resources of 244 MMboe.

The well is on-trend north of the Alta and Neiden oil discoveries, about 18km northwest of the Neiden discovery well.

The main objective of the well is to test the reservoir properties and hydrocarbon potential of Permian-Carboniferous carbonate reservoirs. 

The well will be drilled with the semisubmersible drilling rig Leiv Eiriksson and is expected to take approximately 35 days. Planned total depth for the well is about 1300m.

Lundin Norway is the operator of PL609 with a 40% working interest. The partners are DEA Norge and Idemitsu Petroleum Norge with 30% working interest each.
