OLSO -- North Sea wildcat well 34/3-2 S is dry says operator BG Norge. The well, in production license 373 S, was drilled on a separate structure east of wells 34/3-1 S and 34/3-1 A, that proved and delineated discoveries in 2008.

The purpose of the well was to prove additional petroleum in sandstone from the early Jurassic Age, primarily in the Cook formation and secondarily in the Statfjord formation.

The well encountered non-mobile petroleum in the Cook formation and both drilling targets encountered rocks of substantial thickness with good reservoir quality, the company says. Data acquisition has been completed and the well will now be plugged and abandoned.

The rig West Alpha drilled the well to a TVD of 4,297 m (14,098 ft) below the sea surface. The well was terminated in the Statfjord formation from the Triassic Age.
