Lundin Norway AS has received consent for exploration drilling

Lundin Norway AS is the operator for production licence 359 in the North Sea. We have given the company consent to drill exploration well 16/4-11.


Drilling is planned to start in February 2018, with a duration of around 47 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.

The drilling location's geographical coordinates will be:

  • 58° 40' 16.11" N
  • 02° 14' 25.30" E

The well is to be drilled by COSLInnovator, which is a semi-submersible drilling facility constructed at the Yantai Raffles Shipyard in China. The facility was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in 2012.
