Offshore staff

OSLO, Norway – Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has approved Lundin Norway’s latest exploration drilling program in the North Sea.

This involves use of the semisubmersible Transocean Winner to drill well 16/1-17 on a prospect east of the Edvard Grieg field in production license PL 338.

The location is 200 km (124 mi) west of Stavanger, in 109 m (357 ft) water depth.

Drilling will not start before end-December, and should last at least 49 days. However, the consent extends to a potential side track and possible production testing, in which case the program will likely continue for 94 days.

On completion of all activities, the well will be permanently P&A’d.
