The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted DEA Norge a drilling permit for well 6611/1-1 in production licence PL 896.

Well 6611/1-1 will be drilled from the West Hercules drilling facility in position 66°47'39.63"N and 11°1'11.61"E after completing the drilling of wildcat well 32/4-2 for Equinor in production licence PL 921.

DEA Norge is the operator with an ownership interest of 40 per cent. The other licensees are Petoro, Lundin Norway and Equinor, each with an ownership interest of 20 per cent.

The area in this licence consists of the eastern part of Block 6610/2 and Blocks 6610/3, 6611/1 and 6611/2. The well will be drilled about 150 kms northeast of the Norne field, and about 150 kms southwest of Bodø.

Production licence 896 was awarded on 10 February 2017 in APA 2016. This is the first exploration well to be drilled in the licence.

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