Statoil well 7220/7-3 S encountered hydrocarbons in the Drivis PL 532, Barents Sea. The vertical well intersected a 68-m gross gas column in the Stø formation and an 86-m gross oil column in the Stø and Nordmela formations. The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2029 m below the sea surface and was terminated in the late Triassic Fruholmen formation. Water depth at the site is 345 m. Statoil estimates the total recoverable volumes in the Drivis prospect to be in the range of 44 to 63 million BOE (90% oil). Statoil (50%) is the operator, with partners Eni Norge (30%) and Petoro (20%).
