The French oil and gas exploration firm Engie E&P Norge announced it has started drilling exploration well PL 636 Cara in the North Sea, offshore Norway. The well, located in the northern North Sea, 21.74 miles from shore and approximately 3.72 miles from Gjøa, was spudded on Monday 18 July. “In case of a commercial discovery, Cara is a potential tie-back to the Gjøa platform, which we operate,” Engie Managing Director Cedric Osterrieth, said. Engie Spuds North Sea Well “The results from Cara will increase our understanding of the Gjøa area, which is one of our core areas on the Norwegian Continental Shelf,” Osterrieth added. The Cara well is operated by Engie and has a water depth of approximately 350 metres (1,148 feet), with both oil and gas cases considered. The well is considered as a standard exploration well of conventional design with a four string casing programme. The drilling operation is expected to take approximately 41 days and in case of a discovery, the plan is to execute a Drill Stem Test for an additional 25 days to assess the size of the reservoir.
