Vertical appraisal on NE flank of Gohta Field with basal Triassic carbonate conglomerate/breccia and subcropping Røye carbonates as main objectives. Conglomerate/breccia proved absent with 285 m of tight spiculitic Røye carbonates, with weak shows, below Snadd claystones from base Triassic unconformity at 2,242 m (2,217 m TVDSS) to TD. Drilling terminated 393 m high to plan due to slow drilling in hard formation and lack of reservoir. Total 156 m core recovered. No valid pressures achieved and no samples taken.
