The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Equinor a drilling permit for three wells in the North Sea offshore Norway.
The drilling program was for two wildcat wells and one appraisal well, designated 35/10-4 S, 35/10-4 A, and 35/10-4 B.
The three well locations are located in production license 630 where Equinor is the operator with an ownership interest of 60 percent while licensee Wellesley Petroleum has an ownership interest of 40 percent.
The area in this license consists of a part of block 35/1 and a part of block 35/10. The wells will be drilled from the Deepsea Bergen drilling rig some seven kilometers southwest of the Vega Sør field.
