Vertical exploration well on Rome prospect with primary Intra-Draupne Sandstone objective in pinch-out/down-faulted trap along south-eastern margin of South Utsira (Haugaland) High. Secondary objective in subcropping graben fill sandstones and conglomerates of probable Triassic age below angular unconformity. Well encountered 6 m of Draupne shales from 2,235–2,241 m (2,204–2,210 m TVDSS), 44 m deep to prognosis with objective sands absent. Tight, low permeability sandstones below Draupne with no shows or evidence of hydrocarbons.
