Repsol Exploration Norge AS, operator of production license (PL) 541, has completed drilling of wildcat well 4/4-1, located about 60km east of the Trym field in the southern part of the North Sea. The well is dry.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Paleocene reservoir rocks (the Lista formation). The well encountered the Lista formation with reservoir quality as expected. Data acquisition and sampling have been carried out which show that the reservoir rock is water-bearing.

Exploration well 4/4-1 is the first in PL 541. The license was awarded in APA 2009. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 1,969m below the sea surface and was terminated in the Tor formation in the Upper Cretaceous. The water depth is 62m. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.

Well 4/4-1 was drilled by the Maersk Giant drilling facility which will now proceed to PL 405 in the southern part of the North Sea to drill wildcat well 8/10-5 S, where Centrica Resources (Norge) AS is the operator.
