The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has awarded a drilling permit to Det norske oljeselskap for well 25/10-15 S in the central North Sea.

The permit has been granted under section 8 of resource management regulations.

Well 25/10-15 S will be drilled from the Maersk Interceptor drilling facility at position 59°05’14.49” north 02°14’13.78” east.

Drilling programme for well 25/10-15 S is linked to drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 626, where Det norske oljeselskap is the operator with a 50% ownership interest.

In 2012, production licence 626 was awarded and 25/10-15 S will be the first well to be drilled in it.

The well is the third within the licence area.

"The well is the third within the licence area."

Other licensees for the programme are Tullow Oil Norge with 30%, MOL Norge with 10% and Fortis Petroleum Norway with 10% ownership.

Norwegian Petroleum Directorate said that the area in the licence includes part of block 25/10 and the well will be drilled in the north-eastern part of the licence, located in the central North Sea.

The newly awarded permit is dependent upon the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities before begining drilling activities.

Recently, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate granted a drilling permit to Eni Norge for well 7222/1-1.

The well will be drilled around 250km north of Hammerfest, Norway.
