Lundin has received consent to drill exploration well 7220/6-2 in the Barents Sea.

Lundin is the operator for production licence 609 in block 7220/6 in the Barents Sea. Exploration well 7220/6-2 is to be drilled in a prospect called Neiden.

The coordinates of the well will be:

  • 72° 34' 13.13" N

Drilling is scheduled to begin in mid-August 2015 at the earliest and estimated to last 40 days.

The well is to be drilled by the Island Innovator mobile drilling facility. This is a semi-submersible mobile drilling facility of the GM4000-WI type, built in 2012 at Cosco Zhoushan Shipyard in China. The facility is operated by Odfjell Drilling. It is registered in Norway and classified by DNV GL. Island Innovator was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in August 2013.

The PSA has now granted Lundin consent for exploration drilling.
