11/12/2002 Norsk Hydro Produksjon AS, operator of Production License 253, is in the process of concluding drilling activities on wildcat well 6403/10-1.

The well is being drilled by the Scarabeo 5 rig to test a new Cretaceous play model in the western part of the Møre Basin.  The plan is to drill the well to a total depth of 3400 meters, and the well will be concluded in rocks from the Cretaceous Age.

Both of the two anticipated main reservoir intervals for this drilling operation have been penetrated.  No mobile hydrocarbons were proven in the well.

The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned when the total depth is reached.
