The drilling programme for well 35/11-22 S relates to the drilling of wildcat wells in production licence 248 C. Equinor Energy AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 30%. The other licensees are Petoro (40%) and Wellesley Petroleum AS (30%).

The area in this licence consists of the southwestern part of block 35/11. The well will be drilled about 9 km west of the Fram field and about 100 km west-northwest of Mongstad.
