Lundin Petroleum said a wildcat well off Norway has come up dry.
Well 10/4-1 had been drilled in PL734 around 35km from the Yme field in the southern North Sea.
The exploration well, which is operated by Wintershall, had been targeting the Zeppelin prospect.
Lundin said the primary objective had been to prove the presence of hydrocarbons in sandstones of the Middle to Late Jurassic Vestland Group.
Although the well had encountered a sandy reservoir in the Vestland Group, there was no hydrocarbon shows.
The well had been drilled by the Borgland Dolphin to a depth of 2,384metres.
It has now been plugged and abandoned.
Lundin Norway is a partner in PL734 with a 30% interest while operator Wintershall has a 40% share and Centrica Resources has a 30% working interest.
