Consultant: Project within petrophysics and geology. Data collection and data base development.

The Badger Explorer is a revolutionary method to obtain subsurface data for oil&gas exploration, mapping of hydrocarbon resources and long-term surveillance.The Badger Explorer drills and buries underground, carrying a unique package of logging and monitoring sensors, at a substantially lower risk, cost and complexity of utilising an expensive drilling rig. The tool penetrates the sea bed and the subsurface by using a mechanical drill bit driven by an electrical motor to loosen and crush the formation ahead of the tool. The crushed formation is transported through the device and deposited in the void behind the tool. The tool carries an electrical cable, which is spooled up inside the unit, connected to the surface and powers the electrical motors. The same cable is used for continous transfer of data back to the surface. IOR Chemco

(Statoil) many times. When he was coming to our working area he asked me for the answer to the geological interpretation. He also told me that the best geologists were engineers because we described what we could see. The geologists were describing what they thought they could see. Arie Romer wrote the following about me: Sigve has executed his work tasks to our full satisfaction and therefore we give him the best recommendations. Geoservices is the industry leader in mud logging, focusing on drilling support and formation evaluation. Decision-ready information about well status is helping to drill better wells more efficiently. Timely and more accurate information on reservoir fluid composition and lithology is detecting pay zones that would otherwise be missed, assisting well placement, revealing reservoir connectivity and compartmentalization, and guiding critical decisions. Drilling Support

Obtain improved quality and higher level of analysis of surface data including drilling speed, vibrations, hole cleaning, and early kick detection to enhance safety and optimize drilling operations.

Ula

Geology evaluation and supervision when drilling the wells: Ula (7/12-A-5 B & 7/12-A-05B-T2)

Ula (Norwegian: Ulafeltet) is an offshore oil field located in the southern Norwegian section of North Sea along with Gyda, Tambar and Tambar East fields making up the UGT area, usually attributed to DONG Energy's main areas of exploration and production activity. The Ula field was discovered in 1976 and came online in October 1986. It contains confirmed 69.98 million m3 of oil and 2.5 million of NGL.

Ownership

BP is the operator of the field with 80% of interest in the project. BP's partner DONG Energy holds 20% of interest. DONG Energy increased its initial share of 5% to 20% by acquiring Svenska Petroleum's complete share of 15% for

$130 million in 2008.

Production

Ula is located in approximately 70 m (230 ft) of water. The main reservoir stands at 3,345 m (10,974 ft) in the Upper Jurassic Ula Formation. The field has three conventional steel facilities with production, drilling, living quarters. It has 7 production and 2 water injection wells. Current production at Ula field is 10,000 bbl/d. The existing gas process plant was recently extended with a new module, turbin and compressor and has been operative since 2008. The gas from Blane field is injected into the Ula reservoir for production. The gas produced at Ula field is re-injected into the field for increased recovery as well. The field is expected to be abandoned in 2028. The produced oil is then transported by a pipeline to Ekofisk oil field and on to Teesside for refining. In Page 12 of 23

2009, Aker Solutions was awarded a contract to tieback Ula field to Oselvar field. The work is expected to commence in 2011. Once complete, the oil from DONG-operated Oselvar field which is 24 kilometres (15 mi) from Ula will be pumped to facilities at Ula for processing.

Vallhall IP

Geology evaluation and supervision when drilling the wells: Vallhall IP (2/8-G-10 T3 & 2/8-G-11-T4/TS)

Development

Valhall is an oil field located in 70 metres of water. The field was originally developed with three facilities, but has now 8 platforms. The Valhall complex consists today of six separate steel platforms for quarters, drilling, wellheads, production, water injection, combined process- and hotel platform respectively. These platforms are bridge-connected. In addition the field has two unmanned flank platforms, one in the south and one in the north, both around 6 kilometers from the field center.

The Drilling Platform (DP)

Situated between QP and PCP. It has 30 well slots, waste injection and a drilling rig. The platform started its activity on 17 December 1981, at that time with the first covered derrick. The derrick and drilling foundation were removed during summer 2009 and a separate program for plug and abandonment is under development.

The Production Platform (PCP)

The final shut in of the platform took place late July 2012 and the production now takes place on the new process and hotel platform The original PCP platform was built to process 168,000 barrels of oil and 350 million cubic feet of gas per day. The platform is 65 meters high and weighs 21,000 tons. The oil production is piped to 2/4-J at the Ekofisk Center and goes to Teesside in England. The gas is transported directly via Norpipe pipeline to Emden in Germany. The platform also processes oil and gas that comes from Hod. The Wellhead Platform (WP)

Page 13 of 23

Installed in April 1996 and first oil production started in June the same year. WP has 19 well slots. Total cost, including drilling of the wells, is approx. 1,5 billion NOK.

Transocean Leader

Wellbore history

Well 6605/8-1 is an exploration well on a Late Cretaceous Lysing prospect situated on the western flank of the Fles North rotated fault block structure in the Vøring Basin outside Mid Norway. The primary objective was to test the presence of movable hydrocarbons in the Lysing prospect. A secondary objective was to investigate the reservoir potential of the Nise Formation Operations and results

Wildcat well 6605/8-1 was spudded in 838 m water depth with the semi- submersible installation Transocean Leader on 14 June 2005 and drilled to TD at 4513 m in Late Turonian sediments of the Lange Formation. Operations went without significant technical problems. No shallow gas or shallow water flow was observed. The well was drilled with spud mud down to 2500 m and with KCl/Polymer/Glydril mud from 2500 m to TD.

The well penetrated the main target at 4184 m, a 70 m thick Lysing Formation deep-water turbidite sand of Early Coniacian age. Gas was recorded from 4180 m. There were two gas zones separated by a water zone. The upper zone had gas down to a free water level inferred at 4221 m (4193 m TVD MSL). The lower gas zone, at 4253 m, was very thin and was approximately 20 bar overpressured compared to the upper zone. Gas shows were also encountered in Early Campanian Nise siltstone at 3064 m and a deeper Lysing sandstone unit at 4354 m.

One 9 m long core was taken in the interval 4190-4199 m in the upper Lysing reservoir. It contained sandstones interbedded with thin mudstone layers. MDT fluid samples were taken at 4230.55 m (water), 4231.4 m (water), 4209.4 m

(gas), 4211.86m (gas), and at 4253.5 m (gas which gave a dark brown/black liquid when flashed). An MDT run in cased hole after the DST and almost 3 weeks after the last mud circulation gave a maximum temperature of 146 deg C at 4230 m. This was believed to be close to the true formation temperature. The well was perm. abandoned 22 October as a gas discovery. Statoil

West Navigator

Geology evaluation and supervision when drilling the well: West Navigator (6507-3-4)

Wellbore history:

General

Well 6507/3-4 is located on the Alve structure, which is a horst, located in the north central part of block 6507/3 on the Dønna Terrace. The main objective of this appraisal well was to prove down flank oil resources in the Middle Jurassic sandstones of the Garn and upper Not Formations. The secondary objective was to prove oil in the Ile Formation.

Operations and results

Well was spudded with the vessel West Navigator on 14 March 2004 and drilled to TD at 4092 m in the Early Jurassic Åre Formation. The well was drilled with seawater and bentonite down to 1250 m, with KCl/polymer/glycol from 1250 m to 2300 m, and with oil based mud (Paratherm) from 2300 m Page 16 of 23

to TD. A shallow gas warning class 1 was given for the interval between 950 to 1370 m, based on gas peaks observed in well 6507/3-1. A pilot hole was drilled down to 1250 m. No shallow gas was observed. The well penetrated the reservoir below the hydrocarbon-water contact in the Garn, Not and Ile Formations. Top Garn Formation was encountered 7 m below prognosis. Moveable hydrocarbons were not proven, only shows throughout the Garn and Not Formations and discontinuous weak to moderate shows in the Ile, Ror, and Tilje Formations from 3805 m to 4000 m. Two cores were cut in the Garn, Not and Ile Formations and nine MDT water samples were collected in Garn, Ile and Tilje Formations. The Garn sample from 3726 m contained approx 2 dl of hydrocarbon fluid, which proved to be mud filtrate

(base oil) with some dissolved residual oil from the formation. The well was permanently abandoned on 30 April 2004 as a dry well with shows

Testing

No drill stem test was performed

Kvitebjørn

Geology evaluation and supervision when drilling the well: 34/11-A-11 Kvitebjørn

Development

Kvitebjørn is a gas condensate field located in the eastern part of the Tampen area, in the northern part of the North Sea. Water depth in the area is about 190 metres. The field is developed with an integrated accommodation, drilling and processing facility with a steel jacket. An amended PDO for Kvitebjørn was approved in December 2006.

Reservoir

The main reservoir consists of Middle Jurassic sandstones of the Brent Group. Discoveries have also been made in the Cook- and Statfjord Formations. The reservoir lies at a depth of approximately 4 000 metres and initially had high temperature and high pressure. The reservoir quality is good. Recovery strategy

The field is recovered by pressure depletion.

Transport

Page 17 of 23

Rich gas is transported through a dedicated pipeline to Kollsnes, while condensate is transported in a pipeline tied to the Troll Oil Pipeline II for onward transport to Mongstad.

Status

Drilling on Kvitebjørn is challenging due to depleted reservoir pressure. A new infill well was drilled in 2012
