The well is located in the Norwegian Sea, 14 km northwest of the Åsgard A facility (see map).
The purpose of the drilling operation is:
To prove sufficient hydrocarbon volumes in the Garn and Ile formations.
To explore potentially better reservoir properties further south on the structure.
To reduce depth uncertainties.
The plan is to commence this drilling activity upon completion of drilling on the Kristin field, which is expected to be in early March 2006. The operation is expected to take 92 days, with an additional up to 40 days if a production test is implemented.
The well will be permanently plugged upon completion of this drilling activity.
