On October 24th 2011 Rocksource ASA as operator of PL559 completed drilling of the wildcat well in prospect "Phoenix". The well, which was dry, was drilled in the Norwegian Sea about five kilometres northeast of the 6608/11-4 "Linerle" discovery.
The well was drilled to a depth of 2185 metres by the rig "Borgland Dolphin" and encountered the upper part of the Åre formation's reservoir rocks with poorer reservoir quality than expected. In the secondary exploration target, reservoir rocks were encountered of good reservoir quality as expected. Data acquisition has been carried out.
The well was terminated in Late Triassic rocks and has been permanently plugged and abandoned.
