The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Total E&P Norge a drilling permit for an appraisal well located in the Norwegian Sea. 

The well 6406/6-6 A will be drilled from the Scarabeo 8 semi-submersible drilling rig, after completing the drilling of wildcat well 6406/6-6 S for Total E&P Norge in production license 255 B.

The drilling program for well 6406/6-6 A relates to the drilling of appraisal wells in production license 255 B where Total is the operator with an ownership interest of 40% and its partners are Equinor (30%) and Petoro (30%).

The area in this license consists of a part of block 6406/5 and a part of block 6406/6. The well will be drilled about 12 kilometers north of the Linnorm gas and condensate discovery and 270 kilometers southwest of Brønnøysund, and there it will explore the reservoir in Jurassic deposits proven in wildcat well 6406/6-6 S, the directorate said.

Production license 255 B was awarded on May 19, 2016, in the 16th licensing round on the Norwegian Shelf. This is the third well to be drilled in the license.
