Fossil Energy – Equinor
Equinor has found no hydrocarbons in the stacked Ginny/Hermine exploration prospects in the Norwegian Sea.
The well, designated 6407/9-13, was targeting both the Upper Jurassic Ginny and the Middle Jurassic Hermine prospects located between the Galtvort discovery and Hasselmus field development.
Longboat, a partner in the well, said that the well was drilled to a vertical depth of 7,600 feet below sea level and encountered the target reservoirs water wet. The drilling operations were carried out within budget and with no HSE incidents.
“Although this was the least impactful target in our portfolio, we are disappointed that the Ginny and Hermine prospects were not successful, particularly given their location between discoveries of similar age and structure,” Helge Hammer, Chief Executive of Longboat, said.
