Drilling Activity Summary


Neptune Energy, based in London, announced the completion of formation and flow testing at appraisal well #34/4-16 S in offshore Norway’s Production License PL 882. In March 2021, an appraisal well was drilled and temporarily plugged and abandoned and was re-entered in September 2021 to identify the oil-water contact and delineate the Dugong discovery in Rannoch. A secondary objective was to formation-test the reservoir if a sufficient amount of hydrocarbon bearing sand was encountered. The well encountered a 25-m oil column in Rannoch, 22 m of which consists of sandstone of primarily moderate reservoir quality. The oil/water contact was encountered at a vertical depth of 3,443 m. A formation test was conducted in the upper part of Rannoch: a 13-m section was perforated and flowed approximately 2,100 bbl of oil per day during testing on a 32/64-inch choke.
