The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Aker BP a drilling permit for well 30/12-2, which is located in the North Sea offshore Norway. 

The NPD said on Monday that the well 30/12-2 would be drilled from the Deepsea Stavanger semi-submersible drilling rig.

The drilling program for well 30/12-2 relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production license 986 where Aker BP is the operator with an ownership interest of 30 percent.

Other licensees are Petoro (30 percent), Wellesley Petroleum (20 percent) and DNO Norge (20 percent).

The area in this permit consist of parts of blocks 25/2, 25/3, 30/11 and 30/12. The well will be drilled about 43 kilometers northeast of the Frigg field.

Production license 986 was awarded on March 1, 2019, in APA 2018. This is the first well to be drilled in the license.
