Dong Granted Permission To Drill Wildcat Well In N. Sea
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Dong E&P Norge AS a drilling permit for well 1/3-11 in the North Sea.
The drilling programme for wellbore 1/3-11 relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in the southern North Sea.
Dong E&P Norge AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 40%. Other licensees are PA Resources Norway AS with an ownership interest of 30%, Norwegian Energy Company ASA with an ownership interest of 15% and Revus Energy ASA with an ownership interest of 15%.
The acreage in the production licence consists of parts of block 1/3 awarded in 2002 (NST 2001). Wellbore 1/3-11 is the third well which will be drilled in the production licence. The well will be drilled from the Maersk Guardian drilling facility. The well is located just south of the 1/3-6 discovery (called "Oselvar") which was delimited earlier this year by the wells 1/3-10 S and 1/3-10 A.
The drilling permit is contingent upon the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities before drilling commences.
