Drilling of the exploration well Frusalen in PL476, 5-10 km west of the Midgard Field on Halten Terrace has started. The well is being drilled by the rig Songa Delta, and the operator is Det norske. Results are expected in February.

The Frusalen prospect is situated in a prolific hydrocarbon province with several tieback possibilities to existing infrastructure. Noreco's updated resource estimate for Frusalen is 14-96 million barrels of oil equivalents gross, with gas/condensate as the most likely phase. Noreco has a 30% working interest in the license.
