Statoil Makes Further Staer Discovery

An oil discovery has been made by Statoil in the Staer structure close to the group's Norne field in the Norwegian Sea. The find could contribute to a unitized development of several reservoirs in the area. Its commerciality will now be assessed. Staer lies about three kilometers northeast of the Norne production ship, and its oil quality is similar to that in the other field. “This is particularly interesting because we've previously made discoveries in the Svale and Falk structures,” says exploration manager Roger Inge Johansen in the Halten/Nordland business cluster. “Staer is accordingly very important for achieving a unitized development of finds in the Norne area.” Exploration well 6608/10-8 in production license 128 was drilled vertically from the Stena Don rig to a total measured depth of 2,660 meters, and terminated in early Jurassic rocks. A sidetrack, 6608/10-8A, was also drilled 600 meters out from the vertical well to clarify the size of the field. This had a total measured depth of roughly 2,600 meters below the seabed. The Stena Don has also been chartered to drill a well in the Blameis structure east of Norne this summer.
