Spirit Energy’s latest wildcat well in the Norwegian continental shelf has turned out to be dry.
The Island Innovator rig drilled the Scarecrow well 310 kilometres north of Hammerfest.
It was the first exploration well in production licence 852, which was awarded in the 23rd Round in 2016.
The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.
Island Innovator will now drill wildcat well 7321/4-1 in production licence 721 in the Barents Sea, where DEA Norge AS is the operator.
