Lundin receives consent for exploration drilling

Lundin Norway AS (Lundin) is the operator for production licence 700B and has received consent to drill exploration well 6407/10-4 in the Norwegian Sea.


The coordinates of the well will be:

  • 64° 07' 51.8" N
  • 07° 01' 27.7" E

Drilling will begin in September 2015 at the earliest and estimated to last 69 days,  depending on whether a discovery is made.

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.
