Well 7220-11-3-AR

Lundin Norway has secured a permit from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) to drill well 7220/11-3 AR in the Barents Sea.

The well is planned to be drilled from the Leiv Eiriksson drilling facility at position 72°56ft45,94in north and 22°19ft26,18in east in production licence 609 and will be drilled 4km south of the 7220/11-1 discovery well.

NPD said that the drilling programme for well 7220/11-3 AR relates to the deepening of appraisal well 7220/11-3 A.

In September last year, well 7220/11-3 A was drilled 400m to the south-east and encountered a 74m hydrocarbon column, with 30m of this gas, while 44m was oil.

Later on, the well was temporarily plugged and abandoned in the same production licence to return it to drill deeper and perform a production test.

"Well 7220/11-3 A was drilled 400m to the south-east and encountered a 74m hydrocarbon column."

Lundin Norway operates the production licence 609 with a 40% stake.

The permit will be awarded to the company after it secures all other necessary permits and consents by other authorities before starting the drilling activities.
