7/11-12 S

08/02/2011 The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS a drilling permit for well 7/11-12 S.

Well 7/11-12 S will be drilled from the Mærsk Gallant drilling facility at position 57°0’54.51’’north and 2°36’13.54” east.

The drilling program for well 7/11-12 S relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 301 CS. ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 22 per cent. The other licensees on the field are OMV (Norge AS) with 30 per cent, Dong E&P Norge AS with 28 per cent and Talisman Energy Norge AS with 20 per cent.

Production licence 301 CS was carved out of production licence 301 in 2008. This licence was awarded in APA 2003.

The area in the production licence is located in the southern part of the North Sea, 20 kilometres southwest of the Ula field, and consists of parts of block 7/11. Parts of the licence are divided stratigraphically, and relate to the level under Top Cretaceous. Well 7/11-12 S is the first exploration well in the production licence.  

The permit is contingent on the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities before the drilling activity commences.
