PSA: Lundin to drill Neiden with Island Innovator semi-sub

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has given its consent to Lundin Norway to drill exploration well 7220/6-2 in the Barents Sea with the Island Innovator drilling rig. 

Lundin is the operator for production licence 609 in block 7220/6 in the Barents Sea. Exploration well 7220/6-2 is to be drilled in a prospect called Neiden.

Drilling is scheduled to begin in mid-August 2015 at the earliest and estimated to last 40 days.

The well is to be drilled with the Island Innovator semi-submersible drilling rig of the GM4000-WI type, built in 2012 at Cosco Zhoushan Shipyard in China. The rig is operated by Odfjell Drilling. It is registered in Norway and classified by DNV GL.

Island Innovator was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in August 2013.

To remind, Lundin received a drilling permit for well 7220/6-2 from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) in July 2015.

Lundin Norway AS is the operator with a 40 per cent ownership interest, and the licensees are Idemitsu Petroleum Norge AS with 30 per cent and RWE Dea Norge AS with 30 per cent.
