Lundin has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority, Norway, to carry out exploration drilling of well 16/1-27 on the Edvard Grieg field.

Lundin is the operator of the Edvard Grieg field, in the North Sea, around 140 kilometres west-southwest of Stavanger. The field is one of the largest oil fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Production from the field began in 2015.

The well to be drilled is an appraisal well in a structure named Edvard Grieg SW.

The coordinates of the well will be:

58° 50’ 18.11” N

02° 11’ 56.83” E

Water depth at the site is 138 metres. Drilling is scheduled to begin on 1 March 2017 and will last 44 days.

The well is to be drilled by the Island Innovator mobile drilling facility. The facility is a type GM4000, delivered by the COSCO Shipyard in China in 2012. It is owned by Island Drilling Company and operated by Odfjell Drilling. Island Innovator was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in August 2013.
