In connection with the Award in Predefined Areas for 2016 Statoil has been awarded interests in 29 exploration licenses on the Norwegian continental shelf, 16 of these as operator, and 13 as a partner.

The award is on a level with APA 2015, when a record number of licenses were awarded. This year’s offer includes one commitment well, PL894, in the Norwegian Sea. Statoil is partner with an interest of 40 percent, Wintershall is the operator with an interest of 40 percent and Petoro is partner with 20 percent. The licence includes a work commitment to drill an exploration well within three years of the award. A potential discovery will have a follow-up potential and may add important additional volumes to Aasta Hansteen. The award illustrates Statoil’s intensified search for new resources in the Norwegian Sea.
