STAVANGER -- Wildcat well 6407/2-4 in the Norwegian Sea is dry, according to Det norske. The semisubSonga Delta drilled the well to a vertical depth of 2,972 m (9 751 ft) below the sea surface. The dry well encountered reservoir rocks of the expected thickness and good reservoir quality, the company says.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks in the Middle Jurassic (the Fangst group). The well was terminated in the Ile formation in the Middle Jurassic and will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
