Vertical exploration well on the Sturgeon prospect. Dip-closure within NNW-SSE trending Balder/Flugga mound with spill at 5,210 ft approximately corresponding to a conformable amplitude/inversion anomaly. Well encountered minor gas and oil over water in thin-bedded Skroo secondary objective (4,634–4,846 ft TVDSS) with 32 ft net reservoir and 15.5 ft net pay. Balder at 4,846 ft TVDSS was in claystone facies with Flugga Sandstone (5,047–5,281 ft TVDSS) water-wet with residual fluorescence. Observed anomalies proved to be response to soft Balder clays.
