Det norske oljeselskap ASA has received consent for exploration drilling using the Mærsk Giant jack-up rig to drill well 2/9-5 S Heimdalshø, in production licence 494, offshore Norway.

The well is in the southern part of the North Sea, around 34 km west of  the Valhall field. Water depth at the site is approximately 65 metres.

Drilling is planned to begin in July 2014, with a duration of around 60 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.  The rig is owned and operated by the A.P. Møller-Mærsk Group.

It was built in Japan by Hitachi and completed in 1986. Mærsk Giant can operate in water depths of up to 107 metres and accommodates 87 people.
