Statoil added that it completed 12 exploration wells in the first quarter, six on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and six internationally, with seven discoveries: four on the NCS, two in Tanzania and one in the Gulf of Mexico.

Meanwhile, on April 19 Statoil announced what its described as considerable additional resources on its Gullfaks license in the North Sea.
