Byford Dolphin drills the B prospect for Statoil Projects and Operations
// September 21, 2001
Statoil says the drilling rig Byford Dolphin has commenced drilling an appraisal well near the Sleipner area of the North Sea. The purpose of the well is to test the hydrocarbon potential in the B prospect in block 24/12.
"We hope to make a large enough oil find that can be developed later," reports sector manager Řivind A Dahl-Stamnes in the new areas, in Statoil's North Sea unit.
The well is being drilled in production licence 204. The licence, which consists of blocks 24/9 and 24/12, was awarded in the 15th licensing round in 1996.
The blocks lie halfway between the Statoil-operated Sleipner fields and TotalFinaElf's Frigg field on the border with the UK continental shelf.
