  • Well 6707/10-1 in the Nyk High licence PL218 was the first exploration well to be drilled in the deepwater Voring Basin. It targetted a prominent tilted fault block trap with a pronounced flatspot conforming to structure. The pre-drill evaluation highlighted gas-over-water, with the gas–water contact (GWC) at the flatspot, as the most likely case. Given the water depth of 1274 m and the remote location of PL218 this case was not commercially attractive. However, seismic attributes indicated the… CONTINUE READING
