Borgland Dolphin

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Wintershall Norge a drilling permit for well 35/8-6 S, offshore Norway. 

The well 35/8-6 S will be drilled from the Borgland Dolphin drilling rig in production licence 248, that contains the Vega field, located in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

Borgland Dolphin is a semi-submersible drilling rig of the Aker H-3 type built in 1977, and upgraded in 1999.

The NPD noted that the drilling programme for well 35/8-6 S relates to the drilling of a wildcat well.

Wintershall is the operator with an ownership interest of 60 per cent, and Petoro is a licensee with 40% interest. The area in this licence consists of part of block 35/8.

According to the directorate, this is the fourth exploration well to be drilled within the area covered by the permit.
