Wintershall gains nod for North Sea wildcat

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Wintershall Norge AS a drilling permit for well 35/11-18, in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. 

Well 35/11-18 will be drilled from the Borgland Dolphin drilling rig after concluding the drilling of wildcat well 6507/3-11 S for E.ON E&P NORGE AS in production licence 650.

The drilling programme for well 35/11-18 relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 248. Wintershall Norge AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 60 per cent. The other licensee is Petoro AS with 40 per cent.

The area in this permit consists of parts of blocks 35/8 and 35/11. The well will be drilled about 100 km south-west of Florø and about 20 km north-west of the Fram field.

Production licence 248 was awarded on June 4, 1999 (NST99). This is the second wildcat well to be drilled in the licence.

The permit is contingent on the operator securing all other consents and permits required by other authorities prior to starting the drilling activity.
