Friday, Nov 23, 2012

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Lundin Norway AS a drilling permit for well 16/3-5, cf. Section 8 of the Resource Management Regulations.

Well 16/3-5 will be drilled from the Bredford Dolphin drilling facility in position 58°46’31.59’’ north 02°42’18.59’’ east for Lundin Norway AS in drilling permit 501.

The drilling programme for well 16/3-5 concerns the drilling of an appraisal well in production licence 501. Lundin is the operator with an ownership interest of 40 per cent. The other licensees are Statoil Petroleum AS with 40 per cent and Maersk Oil Norway AS with 20 per cent.

The area in this licence consists of parts of blocks 16/2, 3, 5 and 6. The well will be drilled about 2.9 kilometres east of well 16/2-7 and south of well 16/3-4 on Johan Sverdrup in the central part of the North Sea.

Production licence 501 was awarded on 23 January 2009 (APA 2008). This is the twelfth well drilled within the area covered by the permit.

The permit is contingent upon the operator having secured all other permits and consents required by other authorities before the drilling starts.
