The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted Wintershall Norge AS a drilling permit for wellbore 6407/1-7, cf. Section 8 of the Resource Management Regulations. Wellbore 6407/1-7 will be drilled from the Borgland Dolphin drilling facility at position 64?57’44” north and 7?14’6” east. The rig completed drilling operations in August 2013 on production well 35/11-R-14BH for Statoil Petroleum AS in production licence 009C.

The drilling programme for wellbore 6407/1-7 relates to drilling of an appraisal well in production licence 475. Wintershall Norge AS is the operator with an ownership interest of 35 per cent. The other licenses are Faroe Petroleum Norge AS (30 per cent), Centrica Resources Norge AS (20 per cent) and Moeco Oil and Gas Norge AS (15 per cent). The area in this licence consists of part of block 6407/1. The well will be drilled about 13 kilometres northeast of Tyrihans in the Norwegian Sea.

Production licence 475 was awarded on 29 February 2008 in APA 2007 on the Norwegian shelf. This is the second well to be drilled within the licence.

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