27/02/2013 The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Lundin Norway AS a drilling permit for well 7/4-3.

Well 7/4-3 will be drilled from the Mærsk Guardian drilling facility in position 57°42’16.54’’ north and 2°12’15.81” east.

The drilling programme for well 7/4-3 pertains to the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 495. Lundin Norway AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 60 per cent. The other licensee is Tullow Oil Norge AS (40 per cent). Production licence 495 was awarded in 2009 (APA 2008). 

The area in this production licence is in the southwest of the North Sea, and borders the UK sector. The licence lies between the Gaupe and Brynhild fields.  Well 7/4-3 is the first 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.
