Well 6507/5-7 will be drilled from the Borgland Dolphin drilling facility at position 65°32’29.71″ north and 7°34’25.68″ east.

The drilling programme for well 6507/5-7 relates to drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 558. E.ON E&P Norge AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 30 per cent.
