Well 7/12-13 S will be drilled from the drilling facility Maersk Guardian (350' ILC) at position 57°01'19,95" north and 2°51'28.80" east.
The drilling program for well 7/12-13 S concerns the drilling of a wildcat well in production license 450. Det norske oljeselskap ASA is the operator with a 75 percent ownership interest, while the licensee Dana Petroleum Norway AS has a 25 percent interest.
Det norske oljeselskap AS was awarded production license 450 in 2008 (APA 2007).
The area in the production license is located in the southern section of the North Sea, and comprises the south-western part of block 2/4. The well will be drilled about nine kilometers south of the Ula field.
