Vertical exploration well on Knappen prospect. Grounded Triassic sediment pod with Skagerrak sole objective and dip-closure at top Triassic. Well drilled 114 m gross Skagerrak, subcropping Rødby from 2,521 m TVDSS to TD at 2,635 m TVDSS, including 50 m net moderate to good quality reservoir, No shows and no saturation from LWD logs. Gas leakage around the well head, likely derived from Nordland shallow gas seen whilst drilling at 613 and 630 m, required eight days to seal off.
