Oil discovery in the Southern Barents Sea
DEA participates in yet a successful well in the Barents Sea. Drilling of the Filicudi wells in PL533 has resulted in an oil discovery.

“The Southern Barents Sea is one of DEA’s long term focus areas and it is satisfying to see that our dedication leads to yet another discovery in the area. This discovery indicates a potential extension of the Jurassic trend from the Johan Castberg area into a promising new region”, said Svend Erik Pettersson, Exploration Manager in DEA in Norway.

The wells, 7219/12-1 and sidetrack 7219/12-1A, are located in PL533 approximately 40 km southwest of Johan Castberg and 30 km northwest of the Alta and Gohta discoveries on the Loppa High in the Southern Barents Sea.

The main objective of the wells was to prove oil in Jurassic and Triassic sandstone reservoirs.

A gross 129 metres hydrocarbon column of high quality sandstone reservoir characteristics, with 63 metres of oil and 66 metres gas were encountered a in the Jurassic and Triassic targets. Extensive data acquisition and sampling have been carried out, including coring, logging and oil and gas sampled from the wireline tools. The sidetrack well has reached total depth and has confirmed the reservoir and hydrocarbon column. The gross resource estimate for the Filicudi discovery is between 35 and 100 million barrels of oil equivalents (MMboe). Well results indicate significant upside potential that requires further appraisal drilling.

DEA has 30% shares in PL533. Partners are Lundin Norway AS (operator), 35%, and Aker BP, 35%.
