STAVANGER, NorwayEquinor has started its 2022 exploration campaign offshore Norway, with a well targeting two prospects.

The semisubmersible West Hercules is drilling well 6407/9-13 in production license PL1060 in the Norwegian Sea, targeting the Upper Jurassic Ginny and Mid-Jurassic Hermine prospects.

The potential stacked reservoirs are close to Equinor’s Njord field infrastructure and northwest of the OKEA-operated Draugen field, in between the Galtvort discovery and the planned Hasselmus tieback to the Draugen platform.

According to Equinor’s partner Longboat Energy, drilling should take up to five weeks to complete. The company estimates mean prospective resources of 41 MMboe for Ginny and 27 MMboe for Hermine, with potential upside boosting the respective figures to 84 MMboe and 45 MMboe.

Longboat will also participate in wells on the Kveikje and Cambozola prospects this spring.
