This exploration well was drilled on the Romeo prospect located on the eastern edge of the deep Central Graben basin. Its primary objective was the Rotliegend, Auk sandstone with secondary targets on the way down in the Upper Jurassic and Triassic. The prospect is a deep but very significant and well-developed horst block and was an HTHP play. The well found a 27 m oil column in the Auk sandstone of which 24 m is described as having 20–25% porosity.
