Fortis has been informed by AkerBP ASA, the Operator, that the Maersk Interceptor jack-up rig spudded the 25/4 – 11 exploration well targeting the Hyrokkin prospect, on 11th August 2017.

The Hyrokkin prospect in PL 677 is located approximately 20 km northeast of the Alvheim field and approximately 220 km northwest of Stavanger on the west coast of Norway. The primary objective of well 25/4 – 11 is to test the hydrocarbon potential and reservoir properties of the Tertiary Heimdal Fm. in the Hyrokkin prospect. Drilling is expected to take approximately 23 days and further announcements on the results of the well will be made in due course.

Michael Haagaard, Chief Executive Officer of Fortis, Commented:

‘The spudding of well 25/4 – 11 in this highly prospective part of the Norwegian North Sea close to existing infrastructure is exciting as we believe that a great deal of value remains to be extracted from the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The application of leading edge technology, coupled with the financial backing of Fortis’s majority owner, the Seacrest Capital Group, will enable the company to maximise the value creation opportunities in the region.’
