The test drilling has now begun
This morning we started the shale gas exploratory drilling in Dybvad. The actual drilling is expected to take approximately 2 months.
The test well will reach between 3-4 kilometers' depth and will show if gas is present in the shale layers beneath North Jutland. After the drilling it will take some months to analyse the samples taken from the deep sub-surface. Only after we have assessed any potential, will we proceed with further exploration to assess production viability.
On this site, we will keep you regularly as to our progress. Read more about the exploration process on this page.
