Endeavour Announces Successful Well in Norwegian Brage Fieldadmin
Endeavour International Corporation announced a discovery at the site of the Knockandoo prospect in the Brage field located in PL055 in the Norwegian North Sea.
The Brage platform well 31/4-A-01 AT2 well found oil in the upper part of the Middle Jurassic Brent Group. The operator StatoilHydro estimates “the size of the discovery is between 1.8 and 6.3 million barrels of oil recoverable.” The well was not tested; however, extensive data was acquired during the drilling.
“The Knockandoo discovery continues a string of successes in Norway,” said William L. Transier, chairman and chief executive officer. “More importantly, this success will add current production very soon because of its proximity to existing infrastructure.”
The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2,513 meters in a water depth of 137 meters and was terminated in the Lower Jurassic Statfjord Group. The well is now being completed and will be put on production at Brage field. Endeavour has 4.44% equity in the well.
