Lundin spuds Hufsa probe in southern Barents Sea

Written by  OE Staff Monday, 09 October 2017 02:36

Lundin has started drilling on the Hufsa exploration well in PL533 in the southern Norwegian Barents Sea.

The well (7219/12-2) is south of the Filicudi oil discovery and the large Statoil-operated Johan Castberg oil discovery.

The Hufsa prospect has multiple Jurassic and Triassic sandstone reservoir targets requiring a two branch well to test the full extent of the prospect. The first branch will target the Nordmela and the Tubåen formations and the second branch will target the Stø formation. The Hufsa prospect is estimated to contain gross unrisked prospective resources of 285 MMboe.

The well will be drilled with the semisubmersible drilling rig Leiv Eiriksson and is expected to take about 70 days.   

Lundin Norway is operator with 35% working interest. The partners are Aker BP with 35% and DEA Norge with 30%.
