Winter Dea has added more oil to its Bergnap discovery

Oil and gas company Wintalhal Dea has completed drilling of a borehole in the Norwegian Sea at Bergknap and discovered more oil than expected.

Excavations, re-entry and evaluation of floating wells from Dipesace Aberdeen have confirmed oil discoveries in the joint and Tilje formation and further gas reserves in the Ere formation.

The Gran and Tilje formation findings are estimated to be between 40 and 84 million barrels of renewable oil, while Ere formation is estimated to be between 13 million and 56 million barrels of renewable energy. Oil equivalent.

Bergknap’s discovery is located in the Maria Oil field, 124 miles north of Christiandund and 5 miles west of Winter Dia. The licensing association is currently reviewing possible development options.

We are delighted to have another discovery in the Norwegian Sea area. “We are now working closely with our partners to bring the project to a final investment decision and drive the development of hope,” said Winto Hague’s chief technology officer. “Renewable resources will add to our development strategy in the country and strengthen our commitment to Norway,” he said.

The Bergknap Evaluation Pit is the second improved exploration well for Winterhal Dea in Norway in 2021, following the discovery of the nearby Divaline North in PL 211 in May 2021.

“Bergnap is an important discovery that contributes to our strength on this Norwegian shelf. Along with Maria and the nearby Divaline Field, we already have a position as a Operator in the Haltenbank area. Bergnap and Divaline North will further strengthen this position, ”said Alv Solheim, Managing Director of Winter Dea Norge.

This well was the second exploration pit in APA2015 awarded with a production license 836S. Winter Dea is a 40% stakeholder licensee. Partners Spirit Energy and DNO Norge each hold 30 percent.

The Deepsea Aberdeen rig now travels to the Vega Field, which operates in the North Sea.
