The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has given Statoil consent to drill exploration well 6507/3-12 in the Norwegian Sea.

Statoil is the operator for production licence 159B in block 6507/3 in the Norwegian Sea west of Sandnessjøen.

The PSA has given Statoil consent to drill exploration well 6507/3-12 in a prospect named Mim. The drilling location is around 8 kilometres south-west of Norne, with the coordinates: 65° 58’ 04” / 07° 56’ 01” E.

Water depth at the site is 381 metres. Drilling is scheduled to begin in early January 2017 and will last 27 days. A possible sidetrack from the well will take a further 18 days.

The well is to be drilled by Deepsea Bergen, which is a semi-submersible drilling facility owned and operated by Odfjell Drilling. The facility is an Aker H-3 type, built in 1963. It is classified by DNV GL and registered in Norway. Deepsea Bergen was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in December 2001.
