  • Wellbore history

    General
    Well 6507/5-9 A is located approximately 5 km south of the Skarv Field in the Norwegian Sea. The main objectives of the well were to appraise the 6507/5-9 S (Shrek) discovery in the western downfaulted segment of the structure, prove additional commercial volumes in Fangst Group sandstones and secure necessary data to enable a full evaluation of the discovery.
    Operations and results
    Well 6507/5-9 A was entered with the semi-submersible rig Deepsea Nordkapp. The mainbore well 6507/5-9 S (Shrek) was drilled deviated to a depth of 2317 m in the Båt group and plugged back. The well 6507/5-9 A well was then side-tracked from below the 13 3/8`` casing at a depth of 1106 m on 28 September 2019 and drilled to TD at 2230 (2166 m TVD) in the Early Jurassic Åre Formation. The mainbore well was drilled down to 456.5 m with seawater and sweeps and from 456.5 to 1103 m with seawater, hi-vis, and KCl/Glycol water-based mud. The side-tracked was drilled with Innovert oil-based mud down to TD.
    The well 6507/5-9 A encountered the top of Fangst Group, Garn Formation, at 2108 m (2011.9 m TVD MSL) where the Garn Formation consists of sandstone. The Not Formation was penetrated at 2148 m (2051.8 m TVD MSL) and consists of sandstone and claystone, in parts silty. The Båt Group was encountered at 2156 m (2059.8 m TVD MSL) and comprises of the Tilje (2156 m, 2059.8 m TVD MSL) and Åre formations (2169 m, 2072.8 m TVD MSL) where both formations consist of sandstone with a thin coal layer. A 62.7 m hydrocarbon column was proved in the Fangst and Båt groups, 23.7 m of gas column was found in the Garn Formation and 39 m column of oil in the Garn, Not, Tilje and Åre formations. Forty-five meters of the column was in sandstone with mainly good to very good reservoir quality. The gas-oil contact (GOC) was determined from pressure gradient analysis at 2130.7 m (2034.6 m TVD MSL) and the oil-water contact (OWC) calculated from the pressure plot to be at 2169.7 m (2073.6 m TVD MSL). Both contacts came in at equivalent depth as in the discovery well. The Net-to-Gross ratio of the HC zone is calculated to be at 77.8 %. MDT fluid samples were taken at 2119 m (2022.9 m TVD MSL, gas), 2141.5 m (2045.3 m TVD MSL, oil) and 2186 m (2089.9 m TVD MSL, water). No cores were taken in the side-track, but 3 cores were cut from the primary target Garn in the mainbore.
    The well was permanently plugged and abandoned on 15 October 2019 as an oil and gas appraisal well.
    Testing
    No drill stem test was performed.
