NORTH SEA – EQUINOR REPORTS SECOND DISCOVERY OF THE YEAR NEAR TROLL FIELD
Equinor has again struck oil and gas near the Troll field in the North Sea. This is Equinor’s eighth discovery in the area since 2019.
The volumes are estimated at between 24 and 84 million barrels of oil equivalent, with slightly more oil than gas. Named Heisenberg, the discovery well was drilled by the Deepsea Stavanger drilling rig. Equinor is the operator, and DNO is a partner.
The discovery is considered commercially interesting, partly because it can utilise existing infrastructure connected to the Troll B platform. However, an appraisal well is needed to get a more precise estimate of the size before it can be concluded whether the volumes can be recovered. The parties are considering drilling the appraisal well in 2024.
