Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has granted Total E&P consent to drill exploration well 1/5-5 using the Maersk Gallant (394’ ILC).
Situated in the North Sea offshore Norway, this is the first well to be drilled in license 618. Total, who is the operator for the license, received consent from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate to drill the well in December last year.
Total E&P owns a 60 percent interest in license 618. GDF Suez E&P Norge AS and Petoro AS, both hold a 20 percent stake in the license.
