A large-scale sand injection complex, the Hamsun prospect, was the specific target of exploration well 24/9-7, drilled in 2004 offshore Norway.

An oil column in excess of 100 m (330 ft) was demonstrated with a small associated gas cap. To our knowledge, this is the first deliberate exploration well to successfully target an injection complex.
