22/05/2018 The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Aker BP ASA a drilling permit for well 25/4-12 S and well 25/4-12 A, cf. Section 15 of the Resource Management Regulations.

Well 25/4-12 S and well 25/4-12 A will be drilled from the Deepsea Stavanger drilling facility in position 59°30'39.22" N and 2°4'27.28" E following completion of the drilling of wildcat well 7221/12-1 for Aker BP ASA in production licence 659.

The drilling programme for well 25/4-12 S and well 25/4-12 A relates to the drilling of appraisal wells in production licence 203. Aker BP ASA is the operator with an ownership interest of 65 per cent. The other licensees are ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS (20 per cent) and Lundin Norway AS (15 per cent). The area in this licence consists of the southwestern part of block 25/4 and minor parts of blocks 24/6 and 25/7. The well will be drilled about 8 km southeast of the Alvheim field.

Production licence 203 was awarded on 2 February 1996 in the 15th licensing round on the Norwegian shelf. These are the eighth and ninth exploration wells to be drilled in the licence.

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