Developing the 2/4-14 (King Lear)
By Ragnar M. Fredriksen, Stein Ove Hjelle (Aker BP)


The 2/4-14 well is infamous for its underground blowout in 1989. Several exploration and appraisal wells have since been drilled on the structure. In 2018 AkerBP acquired the license from Equinor and is now planning to develop the field. The presentation will give a short overview on the history of the field and present the plan for the field development from a D&W point of view.
