The Petroleum Safety granted Dong E&P Norge consent to conduct exploratory drilling on well 3/7-9S. The objective of the drilling activity is to examine the potential of a prospect in Production License 289.
Dong previously drilled an exploration well 3/7-7, at the Marsvin prospect, in 2008 but failed to hit commercial pay. The operator plans to recommence drilling at the site in January/February and the activity will have a duration of about 90 days.
Dong plans to use the Maersk Giant (350' ILC) jackup drilling facility at the location, which resides in a water depth of about 220 feet (67 meters).
