Det norske to operate six new licences off Norway

Det norske, an oil exploration and development company, has been awarded ten new exploration licences offshore Norway, including six operatorship, in the APA (Awards in Pre-defined Areas) 2015. 

The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy on Tuesday awarded 56 exploration licences offshore Norway to 37 companies.

“Also in this round, Det norske achieved a god result. We are pleased with the award of ten licenses including six new operatorship,” says SVP Exploration Gro G. Haatvedt.

Of the 56 licences, 27 are in the North Sea, 24 in the Norwegian Sea and five in the Barents Sea. Fourteen of the production licences are additional acreage for existing production licences. Five of the new licences are divided stratigraphically and apply only to levels below/above a defined stratigraphic boundary.

“I will recognize the exploration group for a very well done job. We provided a very good application. All who have contributed deserve a big thank you,” says Haatvedt.

The company recently reported that topside for the Ivar Aasen platform, Det norske’s first major development project as operator, was 92.5% complete.
