The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Talisman Energy Norge AS a drilling permit for well 15/12-24 S, in the North Sea. 

Well 15/12-24 S will be drilled from the Maersk Giant jack-up drilling rig, just northeast of the Varg field in the central part of the North Sea.

The drilling programme for well 15/12-24 S relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 672, where Talisman Energy Norge AS is the operator. The other licensees are Ithaca Petroleum Norge AS, Det norske oljeselskap ASA and Fortis Petroleum Norway AS. The licensees, including the operator, all have an ownership interest of 25 per cent in the licence.

The area in this licence consists of parts of blocks 25/12 and 16/10. Production licence 672 was awarded on February 8, 2013 (APA 2012). According to NPD, this is the first exploration well in the licence, but two exploration wells have been drilled previously within the same area.

The permit is contingent upon the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities prior to starting drilling activities.
