The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Statoil a drilling permit for wildcat well 34/8-19 S in production licence PL 120.

Well 34/8-19 S will be drilled from the Deepsea Atlantic drilling facility at position 61°26'6.84"N and 2°35'24.37"E after completing the drilling on the Johan Sverdrup field.

Statoil is the operator with an ownership interest of 53 per cent. The other licensees are Petoro (30 per cent), ConocoPhillips Skandinavia (9 per cent) and Repsol Norge (8 per cent). The area in this licence consists of a part of Block 34/8. The well will be drilled about 10 kms northeast of the Visund field.

Production licence PL 120 was awarded on 23 August 1985 in licensing round 10 A on the Norwegian shelf. This is the nineteenth 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.
