The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate announced July 28 it has granted Statoil a drilling permit for wildcat well 7435/12-1 in production licence PL 859.

Well 7435/12-1 will be drilled from the Songa Enabler drilling facility at position 74°4’18.21’’N and 35°48’31.06’’E following completion of drilling of wildcat well 7325/4-1 for Statoil in production licence PL 855.

Statoil is the operator with an ownership interest of 30 per cent. The other licensees are Chevron Norge (20 per cent), Petoro (20 per cent), ConocoPhillips Scandinavia (15 per cent) and Lundin Norway (15 per cent).

The area in this licence consists of the Blocks 7335/1, 7335/2, 7335/3, 7336/1, 7434/7, 7434/8, 7434/9, 7435/9, 7435/10, 7435/11, 7435/12 and 7436/10.

Production licence 859 was awarded in the 23rd licensing round in 2016. This is the first well to be drilled in the licence.

The permit is contingent upon the operator having secured all other permits and consents required by other authorities before the drilling activity starts.
