Norway’s Statoil has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) to drill an exploration well in the Barents Sea with the Songa Enabler drilling rig. 

The well is located in block 7219 in production license 532 in the Barents Sea where Statoil is the operator.

The offshore safety body has now given its consent to Statoil to drill the exploration well designated as 7219/9-2, in a prospect named Kayak.
