Engie E&P Norge (Engie) is the operator for production licence 636 in the North Sea. The exploration well will be the first to be drilled in this production licence. It is to be drilled in a prospect named Cara, with the designation 36/7-4. It is located in the northern North Sea, west of Floro and six kilometres northeast of the Gjoa field.

The geographical coordinates are:

04o 04' 08.06" E
61o 24' 59.72" N
Water depth at the site is 348 metres.

Drilling is scheduled to begin in mid-June 2016 at the earliest and estimated to last 66 days.

The drilling will be performed using Transocean Arctic, which is a semi-submersible mobile drilling facility operated by Transocean Offshore (North Sea) Ltd NUF. It was built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan in 1987, and substantially upgraded in 2004.

Transocean Arctic was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in July 2004.

The PSA has now granted Engie consent for exploration drilling.
