Located in the production license 405 in the North Sea, the wells 8/10-7 S and 8/10-8 S will investigate a prospect that Spirit Energy has named “Cassidy”.

The consent applies to exploration drilling with a sidetrack, well testing and associated appraisal well, the safety authority said.

The drilling location is in the southern North Sea, around 15 km from the Ula field. Water depth at the site is 66 meters. Drilling of the wells is scheduled to start on November 10.  The drilling operations are expected to last for 162 days.

The wells are to be drilled using the Maersk Drilling’s Maersk Interceptor jack-up rig.
