Statoil to drill three new wells in North Sea offshore Norway

Songa Delta

After Statoil encountered mixed results in two North Sea wells, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted the oil company a drilling permit for another three wells located offshore Norway. 

The three wells, 30/11-14, 30/11-14 A and 30/11-14 B, will be drilled from the Songa Delta drilling rig in production licence 035 where Statoil is the operator with an ownership interest of 50 per cent. Det norske oljeselskap is the licensee with 50 per cent.

The drilling program relates to the drilling of two wildcat wells (30/11-14 and 30/11-14 B) and one appraisal well (30/11-14 A) which will be drilled if a discovery is made.

The area in this licence consists of a part of block 30/11. Production licence 035 was awarded in licensing round 2-A on 14 November 1969. According to the NPD, these are the 12th, 13th, and possibly the 14th exploration wells to be drilled within the licence area.
