Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS (Lundin Norway) has commenced drilling of exploration well 16/1-25 S on the Rolvsnes prospect in PL338C. The well is located approximately 6 km south of the Edvard Grieg field in the North Sea sector of the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).

Well 16/1-25 S will explore the Rolvsnes area, located between the Edvard Grieg field and the Luno II discovery.

The main objective of well 16/1-25 S is to test the hydrocarbon potential in thin Jurassic/Cretaceous sandstone reservoir overlying porous fractured basement. Lundin Petroleum estimates the Rolvsnes prospect to contain gross unrisked prospective resources of 107 million boe.

The planned total depth is approximately 2275 m below mean sea level and the well will be drilled with the semi-submersible drilling unit Bredford Dolphin. The drilling operation is expected to take approximately 45 days.

Lundin Norway is the operator of PL338C with 50% working interest. The partners are Lime Petroleum Norway AS with 30% and OMV (Norge) AS with 20% working interest.
