Det norske gets green light for North Sea wildcat

Maersk Interceptor

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Det norske oljeselskap a drilling permit for well 25/2-18 S, in the North Sea offshore Norway. 

According to the agency, the well 25/2-18 S will be drilled from Maersk Drilling’s jack-up drilling rig Maersk Interceptor.

The drilling program for well 25/2-18 S relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production license 442, where Det norske oljeselskap is the operator with an ownership interest of 90 percent. The other licensee is Lotos Exploration and Production Norge with 10 percent interest.

The area in this license consists of parts of blocks 25/2 and 25/3. The well will be drilled in the south-eastern part of the license, which is located in the central North Sea.

Production license 442 was awarded on June 15, 2007 (APA 2006). NPD said this is the second exploration well to be drilled in the license, but the fourth within the area where the license is situated.
