Norwegian Energy Company ASA announces drilling completed at Romeo
Thursday, Jan 10, 2013

Drilling of exploration well 30/11c on the Romeo prospect in license P1666 in the UK North Sea is about to be completed. The well has encountered oil at three different stratigraphic levels within the Jurassic and Triassic comprising in aggregate an oil column of some 60 metres. The observed reservoir quality is poor, and further studies are required before the potential of the discovery can be evaluated.

Norwegian Energy Company ASA (Noreco) in November announced that its fully owned subsidiary Noreco UK Ltd had entered into an agreement to sell 11.9 percent of license P1666 for a consideration of GBP 2.4 million in cash plus a carry of drilling costs. After this transaction, Noreco has a 10 percent interest in the licence, which is operated by Suncor.
