The semisubmersible Island Innovator should start the program this month. Operations should last roughly 45 days.

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has authorized VNG Norge to drill well 6406/12-3 S in the Norwegian Sea, 8 km (4.9 mi) east of the 6406/11-1 S discovery and 33 km (20.5 mi) southwest of the Statoil-operated Njord field.
