TRONDHEIM, Norway -- Well 25/8-17 on the Jetta prospect, south of the Jotun field, has hit pay, according to operator ExxonMobil.

Oil was proven, but with less reservoir thickness than expected, the company says. The operator has completed pressure tests and oil samplings.

ExxonMobil and license partners Dana Petroleum, Bridge Energy, and Petoro have decided to drill a sidetrack to investigate commerciality of the discovery.
