The well is located in block 7221 in production license 659 in the Barents Sea where Aker BP is the operator.

The offshore safety body has now given its consent to Aker BP to drill the exploration well designated as 7221/12-1, in a prospect named Svanefjell.

The drilling site is 65 kilometers north-north-east of Snøhvit field in a water depth of 345 meters. Drilling is scheduled to begin in April 2018.

The PSA added that the well would be drilled by the Deepsea Stavanger semi-submersible drilling rig.
