31/05/2012 The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Statoil a drilling permit for well 35/2-3, cf. Section 8 of the Resource Management Regulations.
Well 35/2-3 will be drilled from the Scarabeo 8 drilling facility at position 61°49’0,66” north and 3°35’1326” east.
The drilling programme for well 35/2-3 relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 318, where Statoil is the operator with an ownership interest of 60 per cent. The other licensees are Idemitsu (20 per cent) and Petoro (20 per cent). The area in the licence comprises a section of block 35/2. The well will be drilled approx. 15 kilometres southeast of the 35/2-1 discovery.
Production licence 318 was awarded on 18 June 2004 (APA 2003). This is the fourth well to be drilled in the licence.
The permit is contingent upon the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities before commencing drilling activities.
