Lundin picks up drilling permit for Edvard Grieg appraisal

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Lundin Norway a drilling permit for an appraisal well on the Edvard Grieg field, offshore Norway. 

The well 16/1-27 will be drilled from the Island Innovator semi-submersible drilling rig, in a southwesterly extension of the Edvard Grieg field in the central part of the North Sea.

The oil company received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) to drill the well with the Island Innovator rig in January.

The drilling program for well 16/1-17 relates to the drilling of an appraisal well on Edvard Grieg in production license 338.

Lundin Norway is the operator with an ownership interest of 65 percent. The other licensees are OMV (Norge) with 20 percent, and Wintershall Norge with 15 percent.

The area in this licence consists of part of block 16/1. The well will be drilled about 3 kilometers west of the Edvard Grieg platform.

Production license 338 was awarded on December 17, 2004 (APA 2004). This is the 11th exploration well to be drilled in the license area and the 8th exploration well on the Edvard Grieg field.
