(OFFSHORENO) Statoil, operator of Gina Krog field, has completed the drilling of wildcat well 15 / 6-13 and appraisal wells 15 / 6-13 A and 15 / 6-13 B.

Found as a whole is the total oil and gas column totaling approximately 300m, of which 150m for each of them. Preliminary estimates of the size of the discovery is between one and two million standard cubic meters (Sm 3) of recoverable oil equivalents in the Hugin formation, while estimates of any additional volumes from Sleipner formation requires further evaluation for further clarification.

None of the wells were formation-tested, but extensive data collection and sampling.

Licensees Gina Krog license will evaluate it further with a view to a possible development and association with Gina Krog field.

Wells 15 / 6-13 15 / 6-13 A and 15 / 6-13 B was drilled to a measured depth of respectively 3577, 3925 and 3773 meters and vertical depth of 3552, 3716 and 3447 meters below sea level. All were terminated in the Skagerrak formation in the Upper Triassic. The wells have been permanently plugged and abandoned. The water depth is 114 meters.

The wells were drilled by the Songa Trym, which will now continue drilling by a Statoil-operated well in the UKCS.
