Offshore staff

STOCKHOLM, SwedenLundin Norway says drilling has been suspended on the Neiden exploration well in the southern sector of the Norwegian Sea.

This is due to winter restrictions on use of the semisubmersible Island Innovator, which has drilled a section of the exploration well 7220/6-2 in license PL609.

Operations to complete the well are expected to resume next year.

Lundin operates in partnership with DEA Norge and Idemitsu Petroleum Norge.
