Lundin Norway began drilling the 16/4-9 S exploration well at the Luno II North prospect, approximately 15 km south of the Edvard Grieg field in the North Sea. The well’s main objective is to test the prospect’s hydrocarbon potential and reservoir properties. The reservoir is expected to be of Jurassic/Triassic age. The planned total depth of the well is 2490 m below mean sea level, and it will be drilled by the semisubmersible drilling rig Bredford Dolphin. Lundin (50%) is the operator with partners OMV Norge (20%), Wintershall Norge (15%), and Statoil(15%).
