The other licensees are Ithaca Petroleum Norge AS, Det norske oljeselskap ASA and Fortis Petroleum Norway AS. The licensees, including the operator, all have an ownership interest of 25 per cent in the licence.

The permit is contingent upon the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities prior to commencing drilling activities.
