Shell given nod for Norwegian sea well

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has given a drilling permit to Shell for the 6305/8-2 well in the Norwegian Sea.

The appraisal well in the production licence 250, will be drilled using the Transocean Barents semi-submersible drilling rig.

A/S Norske Shell, Shell’s Norwegian subsidiary, is the operator with an ownership interest of 16 per cent.

The other licensees are Petoro AS (45 per cent), Statoil Petroleum AS (23.6 per cent), Dong E&P Norge AS (9.44 per cent) and ExxonMobil Exploration & Production Norway AS (5.91 per cent). The area in this licence consists of parts of block 6305/8. The well will be drilled about 120 kilometres west of Kristiansund.

Production licence 250 was awarded on 22 October 1999 (supplement to the 15th licensing round on the Norwegian shelf). This is the second well to be drilled in the licence.
