Well 25/2-18 S will be drilled from the Maersk Interceptor drilling facility at position 59°49’30.03’’ north, 02°37’54.14’’ east.

The drilling programme for well 25/2-18 S relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 442, where Det norske oljeselskap ASA is the operator with an ownership interest of 90 per cent. The other licensee is Lotos Exploration and Production Norge AS with 10 per cent.

The area in this licence consists of parts of blocks 25/2 and 25/3. The well will be drilled in the south-eastern part of the licence, which is located in the central North Sea.

Production licence 442 was awarded on 15 June 2007 (APA 2006). This is the second exploration well to be drilled in the licence, but the fourth within the area where the licence is situated.

The permit is conditional on the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities prior to commencing the drilling activity.
