Well 34/8-18 S will be drilled from the drilling facility on the Visund A platform.
The drilling programme for well 34/8-18 S relates to the drilling of wildcat wells in production licence 120. Equinor ASA is the operator with an ownership interest of 59 per cent. The other licensees are Petoro (17 per cent), ConocoPhillips (13 per cent) and Repsol (11 per cent). The area in this licence consists of part of block 34/8.
