This is an appraisal well on the Edvard Grieg Sør Field, but located to the south of the proved, pre drill, field boundary on what is called the Rolvsnes prospect. The well has dual reservoir objectives in the Lower Cretaceous aged conglomeratic sandstone together with underlying fractured and weathered granitic basement rocks. Well 16/1-25 failed to find any Lower Cretaceous or Jurassic aged reservoirs with the sections of these ages entirely absent. The basement contained a 30 m oil column.
