30/8-5

15/11/2017 The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Statoil Petroleum AS a drilling permit for wellbore 30/8-5, cf. Section 8 of the Resource Management Regulations.

Wellbore 30/8-5 will be drilled from the Deepsea Atlantic drilling facility at position 60°28’ 15.43" north and 02o36’ 15.58" east following completion of drilling for Statoil in production licence 501.

The drilling programme for wellbore 30/8-5 concerns the drilling of an appraisal well in production licence 190. Statoil is the operator with an ownership interest of 50 per cent. The other licensees are Petoro (40 per cent) and Total E&P Norge (10 per cent). The well will be drilled about 5 kilometres west of the Oseberg field.

Production licence 190 was awarded on 10 September 1993 in the 14th licensing round on the Norwegian shelf. This is the fifth well to be drilled in the licence.

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