Statoil obtains drilling permit for wellbore 35/11-17

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Statoil a drilling permit for wellbore 35/11-17, cf. Section 8 of the Resource Management Regulations.

Wellbore 35/11-17 will be drilled from the Songa Trym semi-submersible drilling rig at position 61°03’31.22”N and 3°31’56.88”E following completion of the drilling of wildcat well 35/11-16 for Statoil in production licence 090B.

Statoil is the operator with an ownership interest of 45 per cent. The other licensees are ExxonMobil (with 25 per cent stake), Idemitsu Petroleum (with 15 per cent stake) and GDF Suez (with 15 per cent stake). The area in this licence consists of parts of block 35/11. The well will be drilled about one kilometre southeast of Fram.

Production licence 090 was awarded on 9 March 1984 in the eighth licensing round on the Norwegian shelf. This is the 16th well to be drilled in the licence. The permit is contingent upon the operator having secured all other permits and consents required by other authorities before the drilling starts.
