The drilling programme for well 6608/10-17 S relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production licence 128. Statoil Petroleum AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 63.95%. The other licensees are Petoro AS with 24.54% and Eni Norge AS with 11.50%.

The area in this licence consists of parts of blocks 6608/10 and 6608/11. The well will be drilled about five kilometres north of the Norne field.
