The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Statoil Petroleum AS a drilling permit for well 25/11-26, cf. Section 8 of the Resource Management Regulations.

Well 25/11-26 will be drilled from the Ocean Vanguard drilling facility at position 58°14’03.21” north and 2°36’40.99” east after completing drilling of appraisal well 16/2-15 for Statoil in production licence 265.

The area in this licence consists of parts of the 25/8 and 25/11 blocks. The well was drilled about two kilometres south of the 25/8-4 well in the central part of the North Sea.
