Two dry drillings in the Johan Sverdrup field

Lundin Petroleum, Maersk Oil's partner in the enormous Johan Sverdrup field, has performed two unsuccessful drillings in the giant Norwegian prospect.

Two test drillings in the enormous Johan Sverdrup field in the Norwegian part of the North Sea - which represents a major venture for Maersk's oil busines - turned out negative, says the Norwegian Oil Directory.

The drillings, performed by operator Lundin Petroleum, which owns 40 percent of the enormous field, took place in wells 16/2-20 A and 16/2-20 S, where the hope was to find oil reserves in various layers, in addition to locating a connection to exploration well 16/2, drilled in 2010 and which proved that the Johan Sverdrup field contains oil.
