The 26/10-1 wildcat well of the Zulu prospect in the PL674BS licence, offshore Norway, has encountered gas.

The Island Innovator drilling rig was used to drill the well to a total subsea depth of 995m. It was terminated in sediments of presumed Oligocene age Hordaland Group.

Lundin Petroleum subsidiary Lundin Norway operates the licence with a 35% stake. Petrolia Norway and E.ON E&P Norge hold 35% and 30% working interests, respectively.

Lundin Petroleum has proven and probable reserves of 187.5 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe).
