Ludin Petroleum said Wednesday that wildcat well 10/4-1 in the Norway’s North Sea has drilled dry.

The exploration well 10/4-1, operated by Wintershall Norge AS, was drilled in PL734, about 21 miles southeast of the Yme field in the southern North Sea.

The well was targeting the Zeppelin prospect and its primary objective was to prove the presence of hydrocarbons in sandstones of the Middle to Late Jurassic Vestland Group.

Sweden-based Lundin said the well encountered a sandy reservoir in the Vestland Group, but without hydrocarbon shows.

The well is being plugged and abandoned as a dry well.

Well 10/4-1 was drilled by the drilling rig Borgland Dolphin to a total vertical depth of 7,821 feet subsea.

Lundin Norway is a partner in PL734 with 30 percent working interest.

Germany-based  Wintershall Norge AS operates the license with a 40 percent working interest.

UL-based Centrica Resources Norge AS holds a 30 percent working interest in the license.
