Bridge – which has a 7.5 percent stake in the license – said the estimated un-risked mean potential of Mjøsa attributed to the company is 14 million barrels of oil equivalent.
Other parties involved in the well include: Wintershall, with 25 percent; Maersk, also with 25 percent; Petoro, with 20 percent; VNG, with 12.5 percent; and Tullow, which has a 10-percent stake.
The well is being drilled by the Transocean Arctic (mid-water semisub) rig.
