A first exploration well has been spudded by Statoil on its Linerle prospect close to the Norne field in the Norwegian Sea.

Located within block 6608/11 in production license 128, this wildcat lies roughly 20 kilometers northeast of Norne.

"The Linerle prospect has a potential to contain oil," says Knut Chr Grindstad, exploration manager for the Halten/Nordland cluster.

"It belongs to a sequence which also includes the Svale and Falk structures, where recoverable oil deposits have already been proven."

Being drilled from the West Navigator drill ship, the well is expected to take about 20 days to complete.
