Lundin Petroleum says that its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS has successfully drilled a section of the exploration well 7220/6-2 on the Neiden prospect in PL609.
Drilling operations on exploration well 7220/6-2 on the Neiden prospect have now been temporarily suspended due to winter restrictions on the use of the Island Innovator drilling rig in the Barents Sea South. Operations to complete the well are expected to resume next year.
Lundin Norway is the operator of and holds a 40 percent working interest in PL609. Partners are DEA Norge AS and Idemitsu Petroleum Norge AS with a 30 percent working interest each.
