Well 3/7-9 S will be drilled from the drilling facility Mærsk Giant in position 56°26’20.84’’ north and 4°10’10.75” east.

The drilling programme for well 3/7-9 S pertains to the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 289. DONG E&P Norge is the operator with an ownership interest of 50 per cent. The other licensee is Bayerngas Norway AS (50 per cent). Production licence 289 was awarded in 2003 (North Sea Awards 2002). 

The area in this production licence is located northwest of the Trym field in the south-eastern part of the North Sea, and consists of parts of block 3/7 bordering Denmark. Well 3/7-9 S is the second exploration well in this production licence. 

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