The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Lundin Norway AS a drilling permit for well 26/10-1.

Well 26/10-1 will be drilled from the Island Innovator drilling facility in the central part of the North Sea.

The drilling programme for well 26/10-1 relates to drilling of a wildcat well in production license 674 BS. Lundin is the operator with an ownership interest of 35%.

The area in this license consists of the southwestern part of block 26/10 and northwestern part of block 17/1. The well will be drilled about 32.8 km northeast of the 16/2-6 discovery well on the Johan Sverdrup field and about 112 km from Stavanger.

The permit is contingent upon the operator securing all other permits and consents required by other authorities prior to commencing drilling activities.
