Winter pauses Lundin’s Neiden drilling

Lundin Petroleum has temporarily suspended drilling of the exploration well 7220/6-2 on the Neiden prospect in PL609, in the Barents Sea.

Lundin Petroleum started drilling the exploration well in October 2015, using the Island Innovator semi-submersible drilling rig, and has drilled a section of it.

According to Lundin’s operation update issued on Thursday, drilling operations on the exploration well on the Neiden prospect have now been temporarily suspended due to winter restrictions on the use of the Island Innovator in the Barents Sea South.

Operations to complete the well are expected to resume next year, Lundin added.

Lundin Norway, a subsidiary of a Swedish oil and gas company Lundin Petroleum, is the operator of PL609, where it holds a 40 percent working interest. Partners are DEA Norge AS and Idemitsu Petroleum Norge AS with a 30 percent working interest each.
