Central Graben
24 March 2016

Orchid prospect is a simple dip-closure over non-penetrative Zechstein salt. The well had joint objectives in the Upper Paleocene Andrew Sandstone and in Lower Paleocene and Upper Cretaceous Ekofisk and Tor chalks. The main hole and mechanical sidetrack encountered a poorly developed Andrew section, poor oil shows in Lista Formation limestone and Maureen sandstone stringers and good oil shows in Ekofisk chalk. Over 50 ft of net oil pay was indicated by 29/1c-9Z log data.
