30/05/2016 The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Statoil Petroleum AS a drilling permit for wells 30/11-14, 30/11-14 A and 30/11-14 B, cf. Section 8 of the Resource Management Regulations.
The three wells will be drilled from the Songa Delta drilling facility at position 60°11’29.9’’ north and 02°35’11.4’’ east in production licence 035.
The drilling programme relates to the drilling of two wildcat wells (30/11-14 and 30/11-14 B) and one appraisal well (30/11-14 A) which will be drilled if a discovery is made. Statoil is the operator with an ownership interest of 50 per cent. Det norske oljeselskap ASA is the licensee with 50 per cent.
The area in this licence consists of a part of block 30/11. Production licence 035 was awarded in licensing round 2-A on 14 November 1969. These are the 12th, 13th, and possibly the 14th exploration wells to be drilled within the licence area.
The permit is contingent on the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities before the drilling activity commences.
