Drilling Activity Summary


Wintershall announced a gas, condensate and oil discovery at the Dvalin North prospect in the Haltenbanken area of the Norwegian Sea. According to the Kassel, Germany-based company, the Dvalin North discovery is estimated to have between 33 and 70 MMboe. The #6507/4-2 S is north of the company’s operated Dvalin Field. The well also encountered hydrocarbons in two shallower secondary targets, with a combined resource estimate of 38-87 MMboe. The discovery is in an area with existing Wintershall-operated and non-operated infrastructure. The venture encountered a 33-m gas column and a 114-m condensate column in Cretaceous Lysing and Lange. In the primary target in Garn, the well hit an 85-m gas column. Dvalin North is the first well of a two-well exploration and appraisal program for Wintershall in the Haltenbanken area. Wintershall is the operator of the Dvalin North discovery in PL 211 with a 55% share. License partners include Petoro and Sval Energi.
