NORWAY LOGS LARGEST HYDROCARBON DISCOVERY IN A DECADE
DNO ASA, the Norwegian oil and gas operator, announced a significant gas and condensate discovery on the Carmen prospect in the Norwegian North Sea license PL1148 in which the Company holds a 30 percent interest.
Preliminary evaluation of comprehensive data, including cores and fluid samples, acquired from the discovery well and a follow-on extended sidetrack indicates gross recoverable resources in the range of 120-230 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe) on a P90-P10 basis. At 175 MMboe, the mid-point of this range, Carmen ranks as the largest discovery on the Norwegian Continental Shelf since 2013.
The two wells have established a deeper hydrocarbon-water contact, tripling the mid-point of DNO’s pre-drill expected range.
Carmen is DNO’s sixth discovery in the Troll-Gjøa area since 2021 and is located close to existing infrastructure with clear routes towards commercialization. The other discoveries are Røver Nord, Kveikje, Ofelia, Røver Sør and Heisenberg.
“Norway is the gift that keeps on giving,” said DNO’s Executive Chairman Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani. Carmen proves there are important discoveries still to be made and Norway’s oldest oil company, DNO, will be part of this next chapter of the country’s oil and gas story,” he added.
Wellesley Petroleum is the operator with 50 percent interest with partners DNO, Equinor and Aker BP.
Wellesley is an oil and gas exploration and development company, based in Stavanger, Norway.
