The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Statoil Petroleum AS a drilling permit for well 16/2-19 A, in the Norwegian part of the North Sea.

Drilling floor on Ocean Vanguard

The well 16/2-19 A will be drilled from the Ocean Vanguard semi-submersible drilling rig in position 58°54’12.3” north and 2°29’37.7” east in the central North Sea.

The drilling program for well 16/2-19 A concerns the drilling of an appraisal well in production licence 265. Statoil Petroleum AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 40 per cent. The other licensees are Petoro AS with 30 per cent, Det norske oljeselskap ASA with 20 per cent and Lundin Norway AS with 10 per cent.

The area in this licence consists of part of block 16/2. The well will be drilled 2.1 kilometres north to northeast of well 16/2-12 in the Geitungen segment in Johan Sverdrup.

Production licence 265 was awarded on 24 April 2001 (North Sea Awards 2000). This is the 15th exploration well in the licence area and the 11th exploration well in or near the 16/2-6 Johan Sverdrup oil discovery in licence 265.

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