(Trondheim, 3 January 2022) OKEA ASA (OSE: OKEA) announces that drilling operations on the Equinor-operated Ginny exploration well 6407/9-13 have commenced from the West Hercules rig. The well, in production licence PL1060, targets both an Upper Jurassic (Ginny) and a Middle Jurassic (Hermine) prospect located between the Galtvort and Hasselmus
OKEA holds a 40% working interest in the licence which was awarded in the APA 2019 licensing round. The licence is located NW of the Draugen field which is operated by OKEA (44.56% WI).
‘’This is the first of three exploration wells we will be drilling the coming year, all focussed on near-field exploration near our Draugen and Gjøa producing fields.’’ says Andrew McCann, SVP Subsurface & Wells in OKEA. “This type of exploration is core to OKEA’s strategy of identifying upside potential for our producing assets and a discovery in this area could be developed rapidly through use of existing infrastructure’’, Mr McCann added.
