Lundin gets drilling permit for North Sea appraisal well

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Lundin Norway a drilling permit for an appraisal well in the North Sea offshore Norway. 

The NPD said on Thursday that the drilling program for the well relates to the drilling of a well in production license 338 C, where Lundin is the operator with an ownership interest of 50 percent. Other licensees are Lime Petroleum with 30 percent while OMV Norge holds the remaining 20 percent.

The appraisal well, designated 16/1-28 S, will be drilled from the COSLInnovator drilling rig in the central part of the North Sea.

The area in this license consists of a southern part of block 16/1 and a northeastern part of block 16/4.

The directorate added that the well was drilled horizontally, about two kilometers through reservoir rocks to the southwest, starting from approximately one kilometer northeast of the discovery well 16/1-12 (Rolvsnes) and terminated about one kilometer north of appraisal well 16/1-25 S.

Production license 338 C was awarded on December 16, 2014 in the 2004 APA. This will be the third well drilled within the license area.

Norway’s offshore safety agency, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), already gave Lundin its consent to drill the well using the COSLInnovator rig.

Lundin hired the semi-submersible drilling rig COSLInnovator for one well offshore Norway back in July 2017. The contract contained an extension option for eight more wells.

As reported by Offshore Energy Today in late January, Lundin has already exercised its first option in the contract for the COSL Drilling-owned drilling rig.
