Tullow has obtained an approval to conduct exploration drilling in its licence in the North Sea, offshore Norway.

The drilling permit, granted by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, is for the wellbore 16/5-6, located in the production licence 776.

Tullow will use the Borgland Dolphin semi-submersible drilling rig for the wildcat well.

Tullow Oil Norge AS, Tullow’s Norwegian subsidiary, operates the licence with a 40 percent stake.┬áThe other partners are Concedo ASA with 20%, Wintershall Norge AS with 20% and Petoro AS with a 20% ownership interest. Production licence 776 was awarded in 2015 (APA 2014).

The area in this production licence is located in the central part of the North Sea, and consists of parts of blocks 16/5, 6, 8 and 9. The well will be drilled about 30 km south of the giant Johan Sverdrup field. This is the first well to be drilled within the production licence area.
