Lundin gets green light for Barents Sea well drilling

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Lundin Norway AS a drilling permit for well 7220/11-2, in the production licence 609 in the Barents Sea. 

The well will be drilled from the Island Innovator semi-submersible drilling rig.

The drilling programme for well 7220/11-2 relates to the drilling of an appraisal well in production licence 609. Lundin Norway AS is the operator with a 40% ownership interest, and the licensees are Idemitsu Petroleum Norge AS with 30% and RWE Dea Norge AS AS with 30%.

The production licence consists of the blocks/parts of blocks 7220/6, 7220/9, 7220/11, 7220/12 and 7221/4. The production licence was awarded in the 21st licensing round in 2011.

This well will be the second exploration well in production licence 609.

According to the NPD, the permit is contingent upon the operator having secured all other permits and consents required by other authorities before the drilling starts.
