    Date updated
    7324/8-1 (Wisting) is a discovery in the Barents Sea, 300 kilometres off the northern coast of Norway. The water depth is 400 metres. The discovery was proven in 2013 and was subsequently delineated by wells 7324/7-3 S and 7324/8-3 in 2016 and 2017, respectively. The reservoir is highly segmented and contains oil in sandstone of Late Triassic age in the Fruholmen Formation and of Early Jurassic age in the Nordmela and Stø Formations. The discovery will most likely be developed as a stand-alone development. The plan for development and operation (PDO) is expected to be submitted by the end of 2022.
