Project Description
Statoil encountered a gross 70-meter gas column in the Nise Formation with good reservoir quality. Volumes estimated to be 6 - 19 million barrels of recoverable oil equivalent. This discovery along with several others in the area will be evaluated for tie back to Aasta Hansteen.

Gymir is located in PL 602 in the Norwegian Sea on block 6706/11 in approximately 4,173 feet of water.

Statoil Makes Minor Gas Discovery Near Aasta Hansteen
Type: New Discovery

Jun. 2015 - Statoil made a minor gas discovery at their Gymir prospect approximately 20 kilometers west of the Aasta Hansteen field in PL 602 in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea. Well 6706/11-2 was drilled to a depth of 8,385 feet encountering a total gas column of 229 feet in the Nise formation. Preliminary estimates place the size of the discovery between one and three billion standard cubic meters of recoverable gas. This discovery along with other discoveries in the area will be assessed by the license partners with the potential to tie back to Aasta Hansteen. Transocean's UDW semisub, Transocean Spitsbergen was used to drill the discovery.
