Det norske is currently participating in four ongoing exploration wells in the North Sea. The company is operator for two of the wells, and a partner in the other two. Results from several of these operations are expected shortly.

Operator Talisman Energy is appraising the Grevling discovery and has commenced drilling operations on well 15/12-23, less than a year after the discovery was made in 2009. The objective is to identify the oil-water contact and to provide information that can help narrow down the estimated volume range. Det norske holds a 30 percent ownership interest in the license.

Operator Talisman Energy has also commenced drilling operations on wildcat 2/2-6, targeting the Optimus prospect in PL 332, located southeast of the Gyda field. This well was originally scheduled for drilling in the second half this year, but has been pushed forward in time. Det norske holds 40 percent in the license.

The semisubmersible Aker Barents is on well location in PL 460, and has resumed drilling operations on the Storklakken prospect, where Det norske is operator and holds 100 percent.

Semisubmersible Songa Delta is continuing the work on appraisal well 16/1-11 in PL 001B. A production test will be carried out on the discovery, and the license has also decided to drill a sidetrack, aiming at identifying the oil-water contact level. Det norske is operator in PL 001B and holds a 35 percent ownership interest.
