Tullow Oil announced it has plugged and abandoned a well in the Norwegian North Sea after it failed to find hydrocarbons.

According to the company, the Lupus exploration well, located 35km southeast of the Oseberg South field in the North Sea, did not produce any hydrocarbons.

It was the first well in production license PL 507, Tullow said on Monday.

Tullow previously reported a $415 million pretax write-off in net exploration in the first half of 2014, primarily due to dry holes in Mauritania, Ethiopia, and Norway over the past 6 months.
