31/08/2011 The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted GDF SUEZ Norge AS a drilling permit for well 7124/4-1 S, cf. Section 8 of the Resource Management Regulations.
Well 7124/4-1 S will be drilled from the Aker Barents drilling facility at position 71°35’16.16” north and 24°5’56.84” east after completing the drilling of wildcat well 6508/1-2 for Det Norske Oljeselskap ASA in production licence 482.
The drilling program for wellbore 7124/4-1 S concens the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 530. GDF SUEZ Norge AS is the operator with a 30 per cent ownership interest. The other licensees are Rocksource ASA (20 per cent), Front Exploration AS (20 per cent), North Energy ASA (20 per cent) and Repsol Exploration Norge AS (10 per cent).
The area in this licence consists of the blocks 7123/6 and 7124/4. The well will be drilled about 100 kilometres north of Hammerfest and about 70 kilometres northeast of the Goliat field.
Production licence 530 was awarded in the 20th licensing round. This is the first well to be drilled in the licence.
The permit is contingent upon the operator securing all permits and consents required by other authorities prior to commencing drilling activity.
