Maersk Oil on Tuesday started exploration drilling on the Tvillingen South prospect in production licence 510 in the Norwegian Sea.

Partners in the licence are Maersk Oil Norway AS (operator with 50 per cent), Edison Norge AS (30 per cent) and North Energy (20 per cent).

According to Edison, the operator has carefully evaluated to re-drill Tvillingen South Prospect, after plugging and abandoning the first exploration well last February, due to operational problems.

The prospect is located on the Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea, approximately 28 km southeast of the Kristin field.

Another partner in the project, North Energy, said that the well, 6406/6-4-S, will be drilled with the Leiv Eiriksson semi-submersible drilling rig. Water depth at the site is 261m. Reservoir targets of Tvillingen South Prospect are the Jurassic sandstones related to the Fangst & Båt Group.
