Det Norske Spuds Eitri Prospect in North Sea

Det norske commenced drilling on the Eitri Prospect in PL027D on Friday, April 10, utilizing the semisubmersible drilling rig Bredford Dolphin. Det norske is drilling the well on behalf of license operator ExxonMobil.

The Eitri-prospect is located in the vicinity of the Jotun Field, and the existing Jotun wellhead platform and Jotun FPSO. The well will also penetrate the Phi prospect, which is situated below Eitri. A potential discovery could be developed in a cost effective manner due to the proximity to existing infrastructure.

Partners in PL027D:

  • ExxonMobil (Operator) 25%
  • Det norske (post drilling) 35%
  • Dana Petroleum 40%
