OSLO -- StatoilHydro has made a discovery on the Nona prospect southeast of the Åsgard field in the Norwegian Sea.

Based on preliminary calculations the size of the find is between 13-31 MMbbl of oil and 1-2 bcm of gas, the company says. The well was not formation tested, but extensive data gathering and sampling have been carried out.

“The Nona discovery further confirms the good results achieved by infrastructure-led exploration on the Halten Bank,” says Sivert Jørgenvåg, StatoilHydro’s head of infrastructure-led exploration on the Halten Bank.

StatoilHydro is considering development using existing infrastructure.
