NPD Grants Statoil 2 Drilling Permits Offshore Norway

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Statoil Petroleum AS a drilling permit for well 30/11-11 S and well 30/11-11 B, offshore Norway in production license 035.

Both wells will be drilled using the Songa Delta (mid-water semisub) drilling facility. The wells are owned by Statoil, which holds a 50 percent operated interest, and Det norske oljeselskap ASA, which holds the remaining 50 percent interest.

Production license 035 was awarded in licensing round 2-A on November 14, 1969. The wells mark the tenth and eleventh exploration wells to be drilled in the license area.

The permits are contingent upon Statoil securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities before commencing drilling activities.
