STAVANGER -- Wildcat well 2/1-14 S in the North Sea is dry, according to Talisman Energy. The well was drilled from the Gyda facility as a sidetrack from a development well.

The purpose of the well was to prove petroleum in sandstone from the Late Jurassic Age. Non-mobile petroleum was encountered at this reservoir level, the company says. The well will be classified as a dry well.

The company believes that further evaluation of the well results could lead to a sidetrack on the structure at a later date.

The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 3,755 m (12,320 ft) below the sea surface, and was concluded in the Skagerrak formation from the Triassic Age. The well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
