Well 31/10-1 will be drilled from the Borgland Dolphin drilling facility in position 60° 05’10.41″ north and 3° 00’4.01″ east after the wildcat well 6507/5-7 for E.ON E&P Norway AS in production licence 558 has been concluded.
The drilling program for well 31/10-1 concerns the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 507. Tullow Oil Norge AS is the operator with an ownership share of 70 per cent.
The others licensees are Explora Petroleum AS (20 per cent) and Ithaca Petroleum Norway AS (10 per cent). The area in this licence consists of parts of the blocks 25/2.3, 30/11.12 and 31/10. The well will be drilled about 35 kilometres south of the Oseberg field.
