Equinor Energy

Equinor Energy has completed the drilling of Well 34/8-19 S. The well was drilled on the northern side of the Visund field in the northern part of the North Sea. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Lower Jurassic reservoir rocks in the Cook formation, and in Upper Triassic reservoir rocks in the Statfjord group. Well 34/8-19 S encountered approximately 90-m-thick rocks in the Cook formation, of which 22 m were effective reservoir, consisting of sandstone with mainly moderate to good reservoir quality. Because of technical drilling challenges, the well was not drilled to the second exploration target in the Statfjord group. The well was drilled to a measured depth of 6100 m, a vertical depth of 3137 m below the sea surface, and was terminated in the Amundsen formation. Water depth is 378 m.
