Lundin Norway has secured a permit from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate to drill the well 16/1-28 S in the North Sea off the country’s coast.

The company will drill the well using the COSLInnovator drilling rig in the central part of the North Sea.

Currently, the COSLInnovator is engaged in drilling the appraisal well 16/4-11 for Lundin in production licence 359.

Under the programme, an appraisal well is expected to be drilled in production licence 338 C, which was awarded on 16 December 2014.

The campaign represents the third well to be drilled within the licence area. Lundin operates the licence with a 50% interest.

Other stakeholders in the licence include Lime Petroleum (30%) and OMV (Norge) (20%).

“The well was drilled 2km horizontally through reservoir rocks to the south-west.”

The area in this licence consists of two blocks, including the southern part of block 16/1 and north-eastern part of block 16/4.

According to the regulator, the well was drilled 2km horizontally through reservoir rocks to the south-west.

The horizontal drilling started from around 1km north-east of the discovery well 16/1-12 and stopped around 1km north of appraisal well 16/1-25 S.

The permit is subject to Lundin obtaining all other necessary permits and consents from concerned authorities before commencing the drilling activity.

Last month, Lundin was awarded a drilling permit for well 7220/11-5 S, which is set to be drilled from the Leiv Eiriksson drilling rig.

The permit will see the drilling of an appraisal well in production licence 609, which the company owns a 40% interest in.
