Neptune Energy and partners make Dugong discovery in Norwegian North Sea

Dugong discovery : Neptune Energy and its partners have made a hydrocarbon discovery in PL 882 license offshore Norway following the drilling of the Dugong well in the North Sea.

The company said that upon entering the reservoir, logs and cuttings identified hydrocarbons and a decision has been made by the partners to initiate coring.

Neptune Energy further said that the operations in the reservoir section are still at an early stage and final results are yet to be available. The PL 882 license partners could take up drilling of a contingent side-track well to further define the extent of the Dugong discovery.

Located 158 kilometers west of Florø, Norway, the Dugong well is contained in a water depth of 330 meters, and is in proximity to the existing production facilities of the Snorre oil and gas field. The reservoir of the Dugong discovery lies at a depth of 3,250-3,400 meters.

Neptune Energy said that the drilling campaign is made up of a main bore with a down-dip side track, which will be based on the results of the main bore.

The Dugong discovery was made by the Deepsea Yantai new semi-submersible rig, owned by CIMC and operated by Odfjell Drilling. The partners in the Dugong well are Neptune Energy, which is the operator with a 40% stake, Concedo (20%), Idemitsu Petroleum Norge (20%), and Petrolia NOCO (20%).
