Statoil returns to Brugdan II well (Faroe Islands)
Atlantic Petroleum today announces that operations regarding the re-entry of the 6104/21-2 Brugdan II exploration well on Faroes Licence 006 have begun.
The Brugdan II 6104/21-2 well was drilled in 2012 and suspended in late November that year as the weather was closing in.
The well is being re-entered using the West Hercules semi-submersible rig in a water depth of about 460m.
Brugdan is a large four-way dip closure in the Tertiary that was previously drilled in 2006 by the 6104/21-1 well which was abandoned prior to reaching the Vaila Sandstone target due to mechanical issues. The well is expected to take over two months to complete.
