This exploration well and its sidetrack was on the Syrah prospect to the west of the Vega Sør and Astero fields and south of the Vega gas/condensate field. The main reservoir target was the Brent Group with the Tarbert, Ness, Etive and Oseberg formations all expected to be present between 3,500–3,700 m. The prospect is a tilted fault block below the Base Cretaceous Unconformity. The well found oil in the Brent and Heather formations, while the sidetrack found oil and gas in the Heather, Brent and Cook sandstones.
