Norway confirms small Arctic oil find

Mar 04, 2014 12:00 AM

Norwegian oil explorer Det norske made a small oil discovery in the Arctic Barents Sea with a gross oil column of about 30 metres and much poorer reservoir quality than expected, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate said.

Det norske earlier said it found some oil in the prospect but initial volumes did not justify development.

Det norske operates the licence and holds a 20 percent stake.

Other shareholders include Sweden's Lundin Petroleum (20 percent), Tullow (15 percent), Rocksource (5 percent), Norwegian state holding firm Petoro (30 percent) and Atlantic Petroleum (10 percent).
