Engie has made a discovery in the Cara prospect offshore Norway that could hold between 25 million BOE and 75 million BOE. The discovery well in License 636 encountered a gas column of 167 ft and an oil column of 196 ft. The company acquired extensive data from wireline logs, three successful core runs, and a successful production test. Possible linkage of the discovery to the nearby Gjøa field’s infrastructure are under evaluation. Engie is the operator with a 30% interest in the license. Idemitsu (30%), Tullow (20%), and Wellesley Petroleum (20%) are the other participants.
