Statoil discovered gas and condensate at its 2/4-23 S wildcat well, 17 km northeast of the Ekofisk field, in the southern North Sea. The well’s primary target was Upper Jurassic reservoir rocks in the Ula formation and Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks in the Byrne formation. A secondary target was to prove petroleum in Upper Triassic reservoir rocks. The well encountered 41 m of gas- and condensate-filled sandstone in the Ula formation and 20 m of gas and condensate pay in the Farsund formation. Statoil (77.8%) is the operator with Total E&P Norway (22.2%).
