The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted DONG E&P Norge AS a drilling permit for well 3/7-8 S.

The well will be drilled from the Mærsk Giant drilling facility at position 56°23’10.72’’ north and 4°14’0.52” east.

The drilling programme for well 3/7-8 S relates to drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 147. DONG E&P Norge is the operator with an ownership interest of 50 per cent. The licensee Bayerngas Norge AS also has an ownership interest of 50 per cent. Production licence 147 was awarded in the 12th licensing round in 1988.
