The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Det Norske Oljeselskap a drilling permit for well 16/1-22 A in the Ivar Aasen field.

The well will be drilled from the Maersk Interceptor (492’ ILC) in production license 001 B, after the drilling facility has completed the drilling of appraisal well 16/1-22 S. Det Norske is the operator of Ivar Aasen and holds an interest of 34.7 percent in the field.
