RWE Dea has had a successful 2008 drilling campaign in Norway, with discoveries at the Jordbær, Uer and Blomster prospects. The largest, the Jordbær discovery, was made in block 34/3, 45 kilometres north-east of the Snorre field in the northern part of the North Sea.

A comprehensive data acquisition program has been carried out as well as a production test. The discovery well tested at an average rate of 7,500 barrels per day of light oil. The rig then stayed on location and immediately spudded an appraisal well, 34/3-1 A, to delineate the discovery. 

The appraisal well encountered the Jordbær oil-water contact as expected. The appraisal well was drilled to a vertical depth of 3,974 metres below sea surface, and reached total depth in Lower Jurassic rocks. The drilling activity was carried out using the Bredford Dolphin drilling rig at a water depth of 400 metres. The well will now be plugged and abandoned. There is further untested potential on the license, which the partnership will be working to explore.

RWE Dea Norge has a 10 % share in the production licence 373 S, where the Jordbær field lies. The other licensees are Revus Energy (20%),  Idemitsu Petroleum (25%) and operator BG Norge (45%).
