DEA Norge AS (Dea) is the operator Dvalin of the field, which is a gas field located in the Norwegian Sea. The field consists of two separate structures: Dvalin East and Dvalin West. Dvalin East was proven in 2010, around 15 km north-west of Heidrun, in 344 m of water. Dvalin West was proven in 2012, around 3.5 km west of Dvalin East, in 400 m of water.

The plan for development and operation (PDO) for Dvalin was approved by the authorities in March 2017, and production is scheduled to begin in late 2020. The field is being developed using a subsea facility. The gas will be piped to the Heidrun field.

Dea has now received consent to drill a shallow gas pilot at Dvalin. The object of well 6507/7-U-10 is to exclude the possibility of shallow gas underground, before drilling production wells.

The well is to be drilled by the Songa Encourage mobile drilling facility. The operation begins in June/July and is expected to last two or three days.
